Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
Charles Manson has a girlfriend, and that girlfriend intends to marry him.
This is weird news on its own, but it gets ever so slightly weirder when the New York Post covers the story by adding a hint of “all women have wedding fever and all men fear commitment” commentary:
“I’ll tell you straight up, Charlie and I are going to get married,” Manson’s 25-year-old girlfriend, “Star,” tells Rolling Stone.
“When that will be, we don’t know. But I take it very seriously. Charlie is my husband,” she said.
If the 79-year-old mass killer wants to take a wife, the only thing stopping him is cold feet.
California prison rules allow inmates to marry anyone but a fellow inmate in the same institution.
Poor Charles Manson and his cold feet. It seems that even life in prison can’t save him from a girlfriend’s obsession with getting hitched.

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.
