Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
Will Ferrell is in another Old Milwaukee beer ad. RadarOnline reports that the commercial, which aired during last night’s Super Bowl, was broadcast only in Glendive, Mont.; Sherman, Texas; and Ardmore, Okla. The minute-long shot consists of a tank-top donning Ferrell aggressively making out with a woman in a bus.
The commercial is part of a larger, low-budget collection that the comedian did for parent company Pabst Brewing Co. in September 2011 for free. “Will approached Old Milwaukee because he’s a big fan of the beer and thought it would be fun to make the commercials,” said Pabst Brewing’s chief marketing officer Bryan Crowley in November 2011. The commercials were uploaded online and played on local stations in Davenport, Iowa.
“Old Milwaukee makes a product to get you drunk,” says Ferrell. “It’s good in eight or nine or 10 samplings, you can’t just enjoy one.”

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.
