Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — More than 300 abortion-rights activists attended a rally at the state Capitol in Bismarck to protest a package of measures that would give the state the toughest abortion restrictions in the nation.
They carried signs and chanted “Veto! Veto! Veto!”
The newly formed Stand Up For Women North Dakota also planned rallies Monday in Fargo, Grand Forks and Minot.
Organizer Robin Nelson says the intent of the rallies is to show solidarity for women’s rights issues.
The Legislature has passed several anti-abortion measures this session. Most await the signature of Gov. Jack Dalrymple, who hasn’t indicated whether he supports the measures.
The Republican has three legislative days to act on them.
The demonstration took place outside the Capitol and inside the building while lawmakers held floor sessions in both chambers.

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.
