Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
Everything became perfectly clear Sunday at Torrey Pines. Tiger Woods was on his game and headed to yet another win.
Woods seized control in the fog-delayed Farmers Insurance Open with a 3-under 69 and a four-shot lead after the third round. He stretched his lead to six shots through seven holes when the final round was suspended by darkness.
Woods was wild off the tee in the final two hours of a long day, but even that didn’t matter. He chipped in from 40 feet for birdie on the fourth, and drilled a shot out of the rough and onto the green for a two-putt birdie on the par-5 sixth as the outcome looked more inevitable.
Woods already is a seven-time winner at Torrey Pines, including a U.S. Open.

The Soyuz TMA-10M
The Soyuz TMA-10M headed towards the International Space Station with crew members from Expedition 37 onboard.
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.
Sunrise from Expedition 36
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.
A pair of NanoRacks CubeSats -- nanosattelite spacecrafts carrying experiments -- were launched by Expedition 38.
