Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Walk-on Alex Barlow made a spinning 6-foot jumper with 6.1 seconds left in overtime and Butler toppled No. 1 Indiana 88-86 Saturday in the Crossroads Classic.
Barlow had scored only 12 points all season. The Bulldogs (8-2) handed the Hoosiers their first loss and beat a top-ranked team for the first time in school history.
The Hoosiers (9-1) were led by Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller with 18 points each. Indiana had a chance to win it, but Jordan Hulls’ half-court heave was off to the left.
Indiana rallied from a 71-64 deficit in the final 2 ½ minutes to force overtime and led 84-80 with 2:12 to play. The Bulldogs charged back with two 3-pointers and won it with Barlow’s short jumper.
Butler’s Roosevelt Jones scored 16 points and matched his career-highs with 12 rebounds and six assists. He was one of three Butler players who fouled out.

40 years ago the Apollo 8 mission flew up to the moon, orbited it ten times and then returned to Earth. This picture was taken from that flight and shows the Earth as it seemingly rises in similar fashion to a sunrise.

NASA Flight Engineer Karen L. Nyberg of Expedition 36 took this photo of the sun rising -- a sight they saw nearly 16 times per day due to the speed of the International Space Station's orbit around the earth.
