Photo by @JimRichardsonNG | Heather spread across the glen at Mar Lodge Estate, carpeting the hills in purple in the Highlands of Scotland. It was glorious to see, not just because the shafts of sunlight were spotlighting the beauty of the Cairngorms, but also because we (Paul Tomkins was assisting me on this story) had been looking for it for a week across Scotland—and here it was. I was in a delirious panic to capture the light fleeting as fast as a fox down toward Braemar. Landscapes in Scotland do not hold still, daring you to see them in their moment. Heather-covered hills are the iconic landscape of the Scottish moors, favored by the estates because heather supports grouse populations. Today the debate in Scotland is over whether the heather should be reduced so that Caledonian pine forests can make a comeback.

The six-person Expedition 40 crew wrapped up a productive week of cargo vehicle traffic and science aboard the International Space Station with more medical studies, physics and robotics on Friday. Meanwhile, preparations continue for the launch of another station resupply vehicle next week.
Seen here is one of the more spectacular scenes of the Aurora Borealis that was photographed by one of the space station crew members aboard the International Space Station from an altitude of approximately 223 nautical miles.

Photo by @pedromcbride | Climbing toward the «Valley of Silence» on the south side of Mount Everest requires a quiet dance that you hope will not disturb the avalanche spirits. The glacier changes daily, creaking and moaning as it flows downhill. To see more wild places, follow @pedromcbride. #Everest #Nepal #mountains #gratitude #nature #glaciers #Khumbu #petemcbride
Peering through the layers: This collage of images shows an active region on the Sun taken at almost the same time in extreme ultraviolet light by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory on July 24, 2014 at about 17:56 UTC. The layers are arranged clockwise from the upper left by temperature of plasma being imaged. This arrangement also correlates with the distance above the Sun’s surface, going from lowest to highest. Different features of the active region appear quite differently in the four images: each one helps to provide scientists with more information about the Sun’s processes.

Yesterday, astronaut Reid Wiseman shared this image of Earth showing Italy at night from the International Space Station tweeting «I looked on in awe and was rendered speechless by so much beauty.» The Expedition 40 crew has been hard at work 260 miles above us in the floating laboratory. They set a new record for #ISS research completed in a week — 82 hours — this past week.
