Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
CHICAGO (AP) — Bail is set at $750,000 for one of two men facing charges in the shooting of a Chicago shop owner whose resistance with a baseball bat was captured by a security camera.
Fifty-three-year-old Cornell Mack was charged Thursday with attempted murder and armed robbery. Police are searching for the second suspect.
A videotape shows Luis Quizhpe (KEESH’-pay) on Tuesday clobbering one of the robbers, who was holding a gun to the owner’s brother-in-law.
The gunman fired multiple shots at the owner of the store, hitting him in the leg. But the wound didn’t stop Quizhpe’s vigorous counterassault. Quizhpe’s brother-in-law is also seen fighting off a robber.
Mack is hospitalized with a gunshot to the chest. Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Erin Antonietti says Mack was shot by his accomplice.

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.

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.
