Photos: The 2019 Artistic Swimming World Championships (24 photos)

In Gwangju, South Korea, the 2019 World Aquatics Championships are currently under way, featuring six disciplines, including diving, swimming, water polo, and artistic swimming (formerly known as synchronized swimming). Photographers have been on site capturing all the aquatic action, but it’s the photos of the artistic swimming events that really shine. Gathered here, some of the scenes both above and below the water of the performances of these national teams of artistic swimmers.

Bound for the Moon: Apollo 11 Preparation in Photos (30 photos)

Bound for the Moon: Apollo 11 Preparation in Photos (30 photos)

Building on years of work with Project Mercury and Project Gemini in the early 1960s, NASA’s Apollo program dedicated itself to putting Americans safely on the lunar surface before 1970, fulfilling a national goal set by President John F. Kennedy. The systems, materials, and techniques necessary to do this were nearly all brand new, and required extensive testing and research before they were sent 240,000 miles away from home. The astronauts were new to this as well, pioneers headed to a new world—literally. The world was fascinated with NASA’s progress as they approached the launch of Apollo 11 in July of 1969, when astronauts Michael Collins, Buzz Aldrin, and Neil Armstrong left Earth to touch down on the moon. Collected here, some of the training, preparation, and daily life that occupied the astronauts and their NASA support team in the months leading up to Apollo 11.

Running of the Bulls 2019: The Fiesta de San Fermin (25 photos)

The annual nine-day Fiesta de San Fermin began in Spain this week. The festival, including the famous “Running of the Bulls,” attracts thousands of visitors to Pamplona every year. The festival kicks off with massive crowds at the Chupinazo in Pamplona town square, followed by a carnival, fireworks, the running of the bulls, and many bullfights. Held since 1591, San Fermin remains a popular, though dangerous and controversial, event.

After the U.S. women’s national soccer team defeated the Netherlands on in France on Sunday, winning the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup for a record fourth time, players received a hero’s welcome today.  Tens of thousands of soccer fans lined New York City’s “Canyon of Heroes” cheering for the team, throwing confetti from windows, and shouting “USA” and “equal pay.” Arriving at City Hall, each member of the team was handed a key to the city during a ceremony to wrap up the parade.

Photos of the 2019 Total Solar Eclipse (15 photos)

Photos of the 2019 Total Solar Eclipse (15 photos)

Yesterday, thousands of people in Chile and Argentina stood outside and gazed at the sky as day turned briefly to night during this year's only total solar eclipse. For two minutes, the Earth’s moon completely blocked the sun, allowing observers in the path of its shadow to see solar prominences and the sun’s vast corona extending out into space. Gathered here, a few images from yesterday of this celestial event, and those who were fortunate enough to witness it.

Photos: Hong Kong Protesters Break Into Legislative Council Building (30 photos)

Photos: Hong Kong Protesters Break Into Legislative Council Building (30 photos)

On Monday, the anniversary of Britain's handover of Hong Kong to China, huge numbers of pro-democracy protesters marched peacefully through the city. Late in the day, a large group of demonstrators from the mostly leaderless movement broke off and faced off against riot police at Hong Kong's Legislative Council building. Eventually, they smashed their way into the building and swarmed inside, damaging fixtures and equipment, tearing down portraits, spray-painting slogans and graffiti, and occupying the building for a short time. Police eventually responded with force, and protesters vacated the building. The development is a new chapter in the history of Hong Kong protesters’ defiance toward China, and authorities in Beijing wasted no time in condemning the “serious illegal acts” that they said may lead to a breakdown in the social order. See also previous recent coverage: “Photos: Hong Kong Protesters Return to the Streets,” and “Why These Hong Kong Protests Are Different” by Timothy McLaughlin.

This weekend, approximately 175,000 music fans gathered at Worthy Farm near Glastonbury, England, for the 2019 Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts. Tickets for this year’s festival sold out in just 36 minutes. Attendees, who set up tents and braved the hot weather, were treated to performances by Stormzy, The Killers, Janet Jackson, Billie Eilish, Jeff Goldblum, Kylie Minogue, The Cure, and many more. The five-day festival wrapped up last night, and today workers and volunteer clean-up crews are tidying up the trampled farm grounds. Gathered here are some scenes from this year's Glastonbury Festival.

Astronauts shot this photograph of the eruption as the column of ash spread out in a part of the plume known as the umbrella region—the area where the density of the plume and the surrounding air equalize and the plume stops rising. The ring of clouds at the base of the column appears to be water vapor. ( NASA Earth Observatory)

Photos From a Month of Pride (30 photos)

Photos From a Month of Pride (30 photos)

We’re in the last few days of June—a month celebrated around the world as LGBTQ Pride month—commemorated with colorful parades, vocal protests, public art, and events. The events are a time for celebration, and for recognizing accomplishments and progress that has been made as a community, cheered on by supporters, neighbors, and advocates. Many of the month’s events work to continue to raise awareness of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender issues; to promote equality, and to eliminate discrimination. On the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall riots, a look at Pride 2019 parades and events from around the world.

Photos: Mexico's Efforts to Slow the Flow of Immigrants at its Southern Border (25 photos)

Mexico recently deployed 6,500 members of its newly-formed National Guard to its southern states, along the border with Guatemala. Responding to pressures from the Trump administration, and to stresses placed on its own citizens by the constant flow of Central American, Cuban, Haitian, and African immigrants bound for the U.S., the government of Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador is still building a response. Obrador stated that Mexico is trying to continue to help those fleeing poverty and violence at home, while still working to increase security and tighten border controls. Along the border, interceptions, detentions and deportations of immigrants are increasing, straining Mexico's already-overtaxed capacity to hold detainees and process asylum seekers.Photos: Mexico's Efforts to Slow the Flow of Immigrants at its Southern Border

Weird, Wonderful Photos From Another Era (30 photos)

Weird, Wonderful Photos From Another Era (30 photos)

While doing my job researching photos for various stories, I always come across more interesting images than I need, or photos that are unrelated to the story yet are still remarkable, strange, hilarious, or just great shots. The best of those, I’ve been tucking into a folder without a clear plan for future use. Today, I offer another sampling from that folder—a grab bag of historic images depicting land-speed records, underwater photography, Italian elections, a young Princess Elizabeth, a streamlined ferry, and more—from epic achievements to small moments. There isn’t really a theme here, other than “I thought these were neat photos, many rarely seen, and thought you’d enjoy them as well.” This is part of an ongoing series of collections of interesting photos from the past. See previous entry: Weird, Wonderful Photos From the Archives.

Apollo Training: When Arizona Stood in for the Moon (21 photos)

Apollo Training: When Arizona Stood in for the Moon (21 photos)

Throughout the 1960s, NASA scientists and technicians worked relentlessly to train and prepare their astronauts for the Apollo missions to come. Locations throughout Arizona were selected by NASA’s new Astrogeology branch to serve as lunar analogues—the moon right here at home. Arizona had plenty of existing craters, exposed canyons, volcanic cinder cones, and lava fields to test NASA’s people, suits, vehicles, and equipment. And to make things even more lunar, a field north of Flagstaff was loaded with explosives and blown to bits to create a cratered landscape complete with ejecta, the underlying rock excavated and flung onto the surface by the simulated meteor impacts.

Monument Valley sits on the Utah-Arizona border, within the Navajo Nation Reservation. The iconic sandstone buttes that dot the valley floor can mostly be accessed or viewed inside Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, which—though instantly recognizable—has many fewer visitors annually than the nearby Grand Canyon. Gathered here, a collection of images of some of the many moods of the valley, from wild storms to dusky evenings, to bright, sunlit panoramas.

Photos: Hong Kong Protesters Return to the Streets (24 photos)

Hundreds of thousands of Hong Kong citizens filled the city’s streets for a second weekend of protest against a controversial extradition bill that would allow authorities to send suspected criminals to China. The demonstration took place despite an earlier statement from Chief Executive Carrie Lam indicating the proposed bill would be suspended indefinitely. Marchers were calling for Hong Kong's leadership to step down and for a full withdrawal the extradition bill. Organizers claim that more than two million people took part in the march in Hong Kong on Sunday.
