Initially triggered by now-aborted reforms to the near-bankrupt social security system, unrest in Nicaragua has broadened into a rejection of Ortega, his wife, and vice president Rosario Murillo, who are seen as autocratic.

12) One of nine cameras that had been set up by photographer Bill Ingalls to capture the launch of a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket on May 22, 2018. It was not the heat of the rocket thrusters that melted the Canon DSLR and its lens, but the flames of a brush fire that was sparked by the launch. The camera had been set up about a quarter of a mile away, and other cameras that were closer came through just fine. The fried camera kept working until its toasty end, and the memory card remained dintact. Photo:Bill Ingalls / NASA

13) The “Arcipelago Pulito” project in the Tyrrhenian Sea in Livorno, Italy has fishermen bring ashore the plastic they have collected on their fishing trips for recycling at a specialized plant. The project is the result of an agreement among the Tuscan Region, the Ministry of the Environment, Unicoop Firenze and Revet Recycling under the supervision of the coast guard of Tuscany. About 10 percent of the volume of each fish haul is plastic waste. A worker at Revet Recycling selects plastic waste collected by the fishermen. Photo: Getty Images
