^Omayra Sanchez was one of the 25,000 victims of the Nevado del Ruiz (Colombia) volcano which erupted on November 14, 1985. The 13-year old had been trapped in water and concrete for 3 days. The picture was taken shortly before she died.

The aurora australis over the Dark Sector at Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station on June 3, 2008. The Dark Sector is so-named due to the absence of light and radio wave interfence. The bright spot above the ground shield in the foreground is Jupiter. The white streaks of light going up are the Milky Way. (Keith Vanderlinde/National Science Foundation)

2003. An Iraqi prisoner of war tries to calm down his child.


Baja California state police stand guard at a captured marijuana greenhouse in the basement of a ranch in Tecate, Mexico on March 12, 2009.


A police officer walks on packages of cocaine in Buenaventura, Colombia's main seaport on the Pacific coast, Monday, March 23, 2009. Colombian police had seized 3.5 tons of cocaine in a container of vegetable grease bound for Mexico.


Shoes used for smuggling marijuana are displayed in the Drug Museum at the headquarters of the Mexican Ministry of Defense in Mexico City March 9, 2009. High precision rifles, a diamond and gold encrusted mobile phone, clandestine laboratories for drug processing and many more items that once belonged to drug traffickers are displayed in this private museum used by the military to show the soldiers the lifestyle of the Mexican drug lords.



Scientists in Hungary have invented see-through concrete. Filled with optical fibres that run from one end of a poured piece of concrete to the other, these prefabricated blocks and panels effectively transmit light from one side to the other.

Re: ITT : Pictures that say 1000 words

A lot of those photographs make me wish I was doing something more substantive today than grinding sundays...

TY for posting.

The vulture/malnourished child photo is absolutely brutal.

Do you have names for all of the photographers? Specifically that one.

Volunteer Africa


A good friend of mine actually manages one of the community centers in Ghana that these funds go towards. So, I can assure you that your money will actually be put into action.

There is a chance I might be going to volunteer this winter, although, both he and another friend of mine have been infected with Malaria... So, at the moment, I am not so sure.

Frog Oil
A landslide triggered by flooding ruptured a major oil pipeline in El Reventador, Ecuador, endangering the wildlife of the region.


-Antennae Galaxies
This new NASA Hubble Space Telescope image of the Antennae galaxies is the sharpest yet of this merging pair of galaxies. During the course of the collision, billions of stars will be formed. The brightest and most compact of these star birth regions are called super star clusters. The new image allows astronomers to better distinguish between the stars and super star clusters created in the collision of two spiral galaxies

The shark/helicopter is photoshopped. Pretty well known one.
