Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
STOCKHOLM (AP) — A protester threw a cake in the face of a far-right Swedish politician during a book-signing event in Stockholm.
Police say Jimmie Akesson, the leader of the anti-immigration Sweden Democrats, was not injured in Tuesday’s incident. Police spokesman Albin Naverberg says Akesson was signing copies of his new book when a woman approached him and threw a cake in his face. She was detained by police as guards whisked away the 34-year-old Akesson.
Naverberg said the woman could face a harassment charge.
Akesson led the Sweden Democrats into parliament for the first time in 2010. But his party is deeply unpopular in parts of the capital, including the hipster neighborhood where he was signing books.

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.
