Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
The show hailed by many as the addictive male counterpart to “Sex and the City” (at least superficially), HBO’s “Entourage,” is officially coming back–this time, as a movie. Deadline reports that the film will act as a sequel to the seried that ran between 2004-2011, picking up six months after the show ended. It will follow the new exploits of the rising star “Vinnie” Chase (Adrian Grenier), his posse of friends, and agent Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven) after he has devoted himself to his wife at the end of the last season. Executive producer Mark Wahlberg gave a taste of the plot back in June, saying, “I think a 90-minute movie of sheer craziness — the guys getting back to just being about the guys, you know? Lose the ladies. Go crazy. Give people what they want.”
Series creator Doug Ellin has penned the script, and Warner Bros. is now seeking out deals with original cast members Grenier, Piven, Kevin Connolly (manager Eric “E” Murphy), Kevin Dillon (Chase’s brother, Johnny Drama) and Jerry Ferrara (Turtle). The filming start date has not yet been set.

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.
