Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
The 27-game winning streak is a thing of the past and the Eastern Conference’s best record is clinched. There’s only one order of regular-season business left for the Miami Heat.
That’s getting the NBA’s best overall record.
And the Heat could go a long way toward wrapping that up in San Antonio on Sunday night.
The Heat have a two-game lead over the Spurs with 10 games remaining for both teams. A win on Sunday would give Miami a three-game edge and the head-to-head tiebreaker if the clubs finish the regular season with identical records.
Of course, winning in San Antonio is never easy for visitors. Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh are both in their 10th NBA season, but they’ve won there only once in that span.

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.
