Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
WASHINGTON (AP) — It’s not just the federal government intercepting your communications. It could be a nosy relative or jealous partner.
Among five individuals added this week to the FBI’s list of “most wanted” cybercriminals is a former San Diego college student who sold online an $89 program dubbed “Loverspy.” The program was billed as a way to “catch a cheating lover” by sending the person an electronic greeting card that, if opened, would install malware that could capture emails and instant messages, even spy on someone using the victim’s own webcam.
The case of Carlos Enrique Perez-Melara is noteworthy because he appears to have made relatively little money on the scheme. But he helped to turn average computer users into sophisticated hackers who could use the information to stalk their victims.

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.
