Photos: Deadly Wildfires Along Turkey’s Coast (28 photos)

Recently, dozens of wildfires have erupted across southern and western Turkey as a dangerous heat wave lingers over southeastern Europe. For the past week, villages and resorts along the Mediterranean and Aegean coastlines have been overtaken by violent blazes that have killed at least eight people. High winds and scorching temperatures are driving the fires, forcing residents and tourists to evacuate by land or by sea.

Photos of California’s Dixie Fire (28 photos)

The Dixie Fire, which started two weeks ago in California’s Plumas County, has grown to become the state’s largest wildfire this year, burning more than 215,000 acres so far. Thousands of residents are under evacuation orders as the blaze has burned several dozen buildings, and threatens thousands more. Gathered here are images of the residents and firefighters working to save what they can and slow the fire—which is reported to be 23 percent contained at the moment.

Apollo’s First Lunar Rover, Driven 50 Years Ago (19 photos)

Next week will mark the 50th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 15—the fourth crewed mission to reach the moon. Launched on July 26, 1971, Apollo 15 became the first Apollo mission to carry a lunar roving vehicle (LRV) to the lunar surface. While the command module pilot, Alfred Worden, remained in orbit around the moon, the commander, David Scott, and the lunar-module pilot, James Irwin, set down on the Hadley-Apennine landing site. The two astronauts later unfolded and deployed the 460-pound LRV (among other gear and experiments), and over the next three days they drove it about 17 miles (28 kilometers) across the lunar landscape. When they were done, they parked the “moon buggy” a short distance from the lunar module, where it still sits today—the first of three rovers left on the moon by Apollo missions. Gathered here are images of the development, training, and deployment of the first vehicle driven by humans on the surface of another world.

On their final day on the moon, the commander, David Scott, parked the lunar roving vehicle (LRV) a short distance from the lunar module (LM) landing craft, positioning it so the television camera on the front pointed toward the LM to monitor its liftoff in a couple of hours. The light-colored square on the ground behind the rover is a small plaque, placed by Commander Scott, inscribed with the names of 14 astronauts and cosmonauts known to have died while developing human space flight. Before he left, Scott also placed a small Bible with a red cover on the control panel of the rover, just visible in this image. ( NASA)

Scenes From California’s Sugar Fire (18 photos)

The Sugar Fire, part of California’s larger Beckwourth Complex Fire, began on July 2 and expanded dramatically over the past weekend. Flames were pushed by strong winds into the town of Doyle, near the Nevada border, destroying multiple structures. The Beckwourth Complex is the state’s largest fire incident so far this year, burning more than 130 square miles in Plumas County. With an ongoing drought and record high temperatures, officials worry that this year’s fire season may be even worse than last year’s historic season. Noah Berger, a photographer with the Associated Press, spent time near Doyle this weekend documenting the scale and ferocity of the blaze, as well as some of the firefighters working hard to contain it.

Photos: The Fans of Euro 2020 (28 photos)

Today, England and Denmark play their semifinal match to determine who will face Italy in the final of the 2020 UEFA European Football Championship, to be played on July 11. Euro 2020 features 51 matches among 24 national teams playing in 11 different host cities. Last year’s tournament was postponed until now, because of the coronavirus pandemic. Host cities and venues still have varying levels of health and safety restrictions, leading to many remote viewing parties being held in parks and squares around Europe. Collected below are images of some of the fans as they have cheered and commiserated with their teams through wins and losses over the past month.

Preserving Hong Kong, in Miniature (12 photos)

In a densely populated city like Hong Kong, where real estate is in high demand and building space is limited, older buildings are frequently torn down for new construction. Longtime residents and historians have worked to protect and preserve what they can of old Hong Kong, but often find themselves fighting an uphill battle. Model makers Tony Lai and Maggie Chan have been working to preserve the Hong Kong of their childhood by re-creating it in miniature form—building meticulous dioramas, street scenes, and even a fairground. Peter Parks, a photographer with AFP, recently visited the studio of Toma Miniatures, photographing some of their many miniature snapshots of a bygone era.

Photos: Rescue Efforts Continue at Collapsed Florida Building (18 photos)

Over the weekend, the death toll following the partial collapse of a Florida apartment tower rose to 10, according to officials, with more than 150 people still listed as missing. Early on June 24, near Miami Beach, a large section of the 12-story Champlain Towers South condo building collapsed. Four days later, rescue efforts continue despite hazardous conditions and harsh weather. Loved ones and neighbors have gathered near the site to put together makeshift memorials and await any news. Miami-Dade County officials announced that they would conduct audits of all buildings 40 years and older in the next 30 days.

Preparing for the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics (35 photos)

With less than a month left until the start of the Tokyo Olympics, organizers and athletes are making final preparations. Originally set to be held last year, the 2020 Summer Olympics and Paralympics were postponed until this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Organizers in Tokyo have stated that the games will definitely be taking place, despite ongoing protests and public-health concerns. While overseas spectators have been barred, locals will now be allowed to attend events, with venues limiting attendance to 50 percent of capacity. Gathered below, images of athletes around the world, as they train, compete, and prepare for their long-delayed chance at an Olympic medal.

Photos: Turkey’s Sea-Snot Disaster (21 photos)

For more than six months now, parts of the Sea of Marmara along Turkey’s coast have been covered in a thick layer of glop known as mucilage, or “sea snot.” Pollution, warmer temperatures, and other environmental factors appear to have resulted in a proliferation of phytoplankton, which are releasing an “overabundance of mucus.” Government workers have been trying to clean up some of the worst-hit areas as biologists and environmentalists have expressed alarm. Below, you’ll find a recent collection of sea-snot images; for the complete story, read “A Slimy Calamity Is Creeping Across the Sea” by our own Sarah Zhang.
