Landing a probe, or a craft with a human crew, on another planet or moon, is hard enough, so imagine the know-how required to set down on a comet. Still, that’s what the European Space Agency succeeded in doing last week, when its Rosetta mission landed a probe on the surface of the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.
Needless to say, the photos collected by the probes concerned, during the approach to the comet, and then the landing, are spectacular. To say the least.

It would be nice to think that the streets of our cities and towns didn’t… develop pot holes, but when – or if – they do, shouldn’t we all adopt Chicago based artist Jim Bachor’s solution for dealing with them?

Careful editing and cropping work prevents us from seeing the bigger picture when it comes to album cover photography… here’s a selection of covers from the likes of FatBoy Slim, Adele, Blur, and Michael Jackson, that gives an idea, maybe, of what we’re missing out on.

South of the river is where it’s all at in London. If you disagree, you disagree I guess. For those however who like things South London, then you’ll likely enjoy SE/SW, a collection of photos of the region, taken by Benedetta Martini.
