Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
ISTANBUL (AP) — Turkish police have released security camera footage of a New York City woman who has gone missing while vacationing alone in Istanbul.
Sarai Sierra, 33, has been missing since Jan. 21, when she was supposed to return to New York but was not on her flight back home. She arrived in Istanbul on Jan 7.
CCTV camera footage released Tuesday shows her eating alone at a shopping mall cafeteria near her hostel and walking around the mall. It was not immediately clear when the images were recorded.
The husband and brother of Sierra, a mother of two, were speaking Tuesday with Istanbul police who specialize in missing persons.
Before she went missing, Sierra told relatives she planned to take photographs at a tourist destination.

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.
