Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
Rep. Steve Cohen’s troubles continued on Thursday, after he told RealClearPolitics reporter Caitlin Huey-Burns, “You’re very attractive, but I’m not talking about it,” in response to questions about a paternity test that revealed he was not the father of a woman he believed to be his daughter.
Cohen, D-Tenn., made the remark and then quickly apologized:
Just asked Rep. Cohen about the paternity test developments and he told me: "You're very attractive, but I'm not talking about it."— Caitlin Huey-Burns (@CHueyBurnsRCP) July 18, 2013
In response to previous tweet, Rep. Cohen came up to me to apologize if he offended. Said its a difficult&personal time for him right now.— Caitlin Huey-Burns (@CHueyBurnsRCP) July 18, 2013
In February, Cohen revealed that a 24-year-old woman, whom he had been tweeting with during the State of the Union, was not a secret girlfriend as many had assumed after he deleted the tweets, but a daughter he had only known about for three years. A paternity test conducted for a CNN report on Thursday revealed that Cohen is, in fact, not the woman’s father. Cohen said he was “stunned and dismayed” to learn about the DNA test.

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.
