Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
BRISTOL, R.I. (AP) — The lawyer who defended Army Pvt. Chelsea Manning against charges of leaking classified information says his client is being thoroughly assessed at a military prison for gender identity disorder.
Civilian attorney David Coombs also says he is hopeful the military will allow Manning to receive hormone therapy at Fort Leavenworth.
Coombs spoke Wednesday at Roger Williams University School of Law in Rhode Island.
Manning is serving a 35-year sentence for a July conviction on espionage and other offenses for sending more than 700,000 documents to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks.
Manning, previously known as Bradley, now says she wishes to live as a woman. The military previously said it does not provide hormone therapy.
Coombs says the person assessing Manning’s gender dysphoria has their heart in the right place.

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.
