Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The wilderness fugitive accused in a string of cabin break-ins in the Utah mountains is regaling detectives with stories about how he managed to evade them for six years.
Authorities and charging documents say Troy James Knapp spent winters holed up in snowbound cabins, sleeping in the owners’ beds, eating their food and listening to their AM radio for updates about the manhunt.
The 45-year-old Knapp moved often and swiftly across a mountainous region stretching for 180 miles.
Searchers say he covered his tracks, and in the final chase it took three days before they were able to capture him.
Knapp was arrested outside a cabin Tuesday in the snowy mountains near Ferron, Utah. He’s being held at Sanpete Court jail for a court appearance on Wednesday. Deputies say he’s eagerly recounting his exploits.

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.
