Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
Ed Asner, the 83-year-old actor best known for his roles in “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and its spinoff “Lou Grant,” has been released from a Chicago hospital, reports the Associated Press. Asner was originally hospitalized due to exhaustion on Tuesday night, when he was taken off the stage during a performance in Gary, Ind.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting that Asner’s local performance of his one-man show, “FDR,” has been canceled tonight, and the AP reports that additional performances in the national tour may be postponed as Asner recovers.
He is currently headed home to Los Angeles, says publicist Charles Sherman.

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.
