“The photographs taken by the Apollo 11 astronauts and the handful of humans who followed them remain unique. They are still the only portraits of our species on another world.”

No officers or citizens were injured. Dallas Morning News staff photographer had just arrived at the Earle Cabell Federal Building to cover a trial when he saw the gunman. He was dressed in a black mask and black tactical gear, running toward the courthouse carrying a large rifle and multiple magazines of ammo strapped to his waist. “I just kept thinking, ‘He’s going to look at me around that corner and he’s going to shoot,'”said Fox. The shooter, later identified by officials as 22-year old Brian Isaack Clyde, appears panicked, peering out behind wide-framed glasses over the mask that covers his nose and mouth. He appears to be loading a magazine into the gun, and in motion. Fox, who took the photograph while hiding behind a column just steps from the gunman, wasn’t sure if he would be shot.

25) Wedding photography is often highly staged, formal and cliched – unlike the occasion itself, which is always unique and emotion-filled. Ian Weldon’s photographs are on display at the Martin Parr foundation in Bristol, England from June 26 to August 10 and a book, I Am Not A Wedding Photographer, is co-published by RRB PhotoBooks and the Martin Parr Foundation. Weldon’s photographs cut through the cliches and the fantasies to capture the real character of the big day with irreverence, warmth and affection.
26) Weldon writes: ‘Much as I’d love to stand around for hours lining people up and taking photographs of every combination of family members and guests, I’ve more important things to be doing. And quite frankly, so have you. I have absolutely no preconceived idea of what I should be photographing. Every image is spontaneous.’ Here’s a candid example.
Here, Weldon was getting ready to take a traditional group portrait. The group had been on their feet all day and had not had a chance to eat anything. So when a waiter walked past with a tray of canapes, they went for it. ‘It’s what I am trying to do with all my photographs,’ says Weldon. ‘It’s that serious situation that is juxtaposed with a ridiculous aspect.’
Rather than following a list of desired shots, Weldon captures what the happy couple – and most others – will have missed.

1) A longtime city employee shot and killed 12 people and injured at least four others after opening fire Friday afternoon in the public works building in Virginia Beach, making it the country’s deadliest mass shooting this year. Police said officers killed the man, identified Saturday morning as DeWayne Craddock, a long-time engineer with the city, after he fired at them in the city’s scenic Municipal Center in Princess Anne, a campus of about 30 brick Colonial-style buildings. Alyssa Andrews had been parked next to the complex, with her year-old grandson, waiting for her daughter, who was inside paying a parking ticket. Andrews noticed that the roads were blocked off. She saw SWAT officers running up the street. “The police were just running back and forth with machine guns in their hands,” Andrews said in an interview on CNN. “I just saw a police officer run in front of my car with this gentleman that had just gotten shot.” Andrews, a nurse, asked if she could help. “They said, ‘No, stay in your car.’ ”
Before the man was taken away, she snapped a photo, which ran on the front page of Saturday’s Virginian-Pilot. The stocky, bearded man, in a green striped shirt and khaki pants, with a lanyard around his neck, is a victim.

31) This design concept is a finalist in NASA’s ongoing competition to design 3D-printed habitats for Mars. The competition required the teams to design habitats that could withstand the intense radiation, extreme temperature shifts and thin atmosphere on Mars. And the habitats had to be designed so that they could be built via 3D printing. A 3D printer could be sent to Mars to build a habitat before astronauts even touch down, meaning astronauts would have a place to live as soon as they arrived planet-side. Photo: SEArch+/Apis Cor
