  • Bulgaria Red Church
    00714580
    Bulgaria Red Church 06/02/2015 IMPACT PRESS/SIPA View of the partially restored unique and the only one in central and south-east Europe Red Church in Bulgaria.The Red Church is a large partially preserved late Roman -early Byzantine Christian basilica in south central Bulgaria, is one of the most remarkable architectural masterpieces of the early 4th century A.D. Dating to the late 5th-early 6th century, the church stands near the town of Perushtitsa, some 15 kilometres southwest of the city of Plovdiv. Probably built under Emperor Anastasius I 491-518, next to an old heathen sanctuary nearby the key main roads leading from Thrace to the White Sea and from Constantinople to Western Europe. It is believed that its place was connected to a popular Christian cult to the martyrs. The Red Church is a centrally planned building with four apses with ambulatories. This plan is very rare for the Balkans. Similar to it are St Sofia Church in Odrin, Adrian's stoa and a church in the village of Lin near the Ohrid lake in Albania. The Red Church originally measured 32.70 by 25.90 metres. The northern wall, the best preserved, reaches around 14 m in height. The Church is a rare example of solid brick construction in a church from Late Antiquity in Bulgaria, and it was the red colour of the bricks that gave the church its name. The floor of the church was covered with mosaics and the interior was decorated with frescoes. The archeological researches also prove that there is big prehistoric inheritance in the region near the Red Church. Archeological finds as Thracian statues and a chariot have been found near the Church. There are also many Thracian hills near it, which are still not researched. Nowadays the Red church in Perushtitsa is considered as one of the masterpieces of the early Christian architecture in Europe.

The now 21-year-old worked as a 'visitor' for Serve Legal, which is a firm that checks whether staff in pubs, supermarkets and betting shops check for ID before selling age-restricted items to young people. He was tasked with visiting various locations and purchasing certain items to see whether he was asked for ID or not. The pay varies by job but typically each visit pays between GBP 6 and GBP 10, plus travel costs. Luke signed up in 2013 when he was 19 and working 15 hours a week on minimum wage in a pub kitchen. He worked as a visitor for around 6 months before her turned 20. He often did up to 25 visits a day and at his busiest earned around GBP 150 a week. /Rex_Student_paid_test_pubs_4796587A//1505300805

    Dried up lake show how the area is mined for salt with colourful algae filling in the gaps left long ago 05/29/2015 Andrei Duman/Solent News/SIPA These remarkable photographs of a dried up lake show how the area is mined for salt, with colourful algae filling in the gaps left long ago. The dazzling contrast of colours follow the lines of wheel marks left by machines and trucks which were previously filled with water. The change in colour is an indication of the salinity of the ponds which once occupied the vast expanse of land, with higher concentrations found in areas of vivid red and orange. These photos - taken high above the lake in Lone Pine, California - help show how much this changes even in close proximity. SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.

The Rocky Mountains stretch from British Columbia, Canada to the Rio Grande in New Mexico, a span of roughly 3,000 miles, and contains many of the highest peaks in the continental United States. The tallest, Mount Elbert, rises 14,400 ft. (4,401 m) above sea level, and is located in the San Isabel National Forest, near Leadville, Colorado. This image covers seven Rocky Mountain states. From north to south they are: Montana and Idaho, Wyoming; Utah (with the Great Salt Lake visible) and Colorado; Arizona and New Mexico.

  • Hubble Catches Stellar Exodus in Action
    SIPAUSA30127509
    Hubble Catches Stellar Exodus in Action 05/21/2015 SIPANY/SIPA Using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have captured for the first time snapshots of fledging white dwarf stars beginning their slow-paced, 40-million-year migration from the crowded center of an ancient star cluster to the less populated suburbs. White dwarfs are the burned-out relics of stars that rapidly lose mass, cool down and shut off their nuclear furnaces. As these glowing carcasses age and shed weight, their orbits begin to expand outward from the star cluster's packed downtown. This migration is caused by a gravitational tussle among stars inside the cluster. Globular star clusters sort out stars according to their mass, governed by a gravitational billiard ball game where lower mass stars rob momentum from more massive stars. The result is that heavier stars slow down and sink to the cluster's core, while lighter stars pick up speed and move across the cluster to the edge. This process is known as "mass segregation." Until these Hubble observations, astronomers had never definitively seen the dynamical conveyor belt in action. Astronomers used Hubble to watch the white-dwarf exodus in the globular star cluster 47 Tucanae, a dense swarm of hundreds of thousands of stars in our Milky Way galaxy. The cluster resides 16,700 light-years away in the southern constellation Tucana. Credits: NASA, ESA, and H. Richer and J.

    SIPAUSA30127491
    Chutes and Fissures in Greenland 05/21/2015 SIPANY/SIPA Scientists and crew with NASA's Operation IceBridge, which makes annual aerial surveys of polar ice, are wrapping up their seventh campaign over the Arctic. In spring 2015, the team began using a different research aircraft - an adapted C-130 Hercules. They also added four new high-priority targets in the rapidly changing region of northeast Greenland. Many of the flights, however, were routine. And that's exactly the point; making measurements over the same path each year provides continuity between NASA's Ice, Cloud, and Land Elevation Satellite (ICESat) missions - the first of which ended in 2009 and the second of which is scheduled for launch in 2017. Repeat measurements show how a landscape changes over time. One area that has been surveyed repeatedly is northern Greenland's Ryder Glacier. This photograph, taken during the IceBridge flight on May 6, 2015, shows a large moulin - dozens of meters across - atop this glacier. Moulins are holes in the ice sheet that drain melt water from the ice sheet's surface to the bottom or out to the sea. Scientists are working to figure out what happens to melt water once it enters a moulin.

Krystal said: "I was worried because she was a small turtle with a significant injury and I was worried about infection. But once she started feeding I felt a lot better.

He explains: "I've been visiting the Forest of Dean for around five years to photograph the wild boar. All around the forest you can find signs of the boar but tracking them down is a lot trickier, they're largely nocturnal but when there are piglets around they stay around the same area. These particular boar have been hanging around in a largely unexplored area of the forest; not many people go there meaning the boar are largely undisturbed. I spent two days following the sounder, gradually gaining their trust and trying to get clear shots of the piglets, which is tricky with all the various twigs, branches and foliage in the way. The piglets are naturally inquisitive, they'd approach together when I lay on the ground, daring each other to get closer before snorting and skipping backwards then repeating the whole process again." /Rex_Wild_boar_Forest_of_Dean_4774927I//1505200905

The seven cute young horses stayed close to their mums as the stallions were spotted fighting this week. The scene looked like something from the plains of America, but incredibly this rare sight of wild stallions was snapped in the English countryside on the wetlands of Wicken Fen - just 10 miles from the city of Cambridge. This behaviour has rarely been seen in Britain for 1000 years when the last herds of wild horses roamed these fields and it is something the babies will be doing themselves some day. "We have had seven foals born so far this year and another two or three are expected. They are all doing really well," said Carol Laidlaw, conservation grazing ranger at Wicken Fen. "It is very exciting to have so many new horses and the herd has now reached about 80." /Rex_Wild_Konik_horses_at_Wicken_Fen_Cambridgeshire_4778792D//1505200717

And just like the famous Nazi dictator who is known for his rotten temper Portos Sansara the hairless donskoy cat knows how to get his way by throwing a wobbler or two. Owner Elena Suleymanyan, 44, noticed the one-year-old moggy looked like Adolf Hitler from birth because his markings bared a striking resemblance to the distinctive moustache and hairline of the World War Two German Fuhrer. But when she realised the cat also had similar characteristics to the totalitarian leader, namely, his bad temper, the comparison became spookily real.

Owner Elena Suleymanyan, 44, noticed the one-year-old moggy looked like Adolf Hitler from birth because his markings bared a striking resemblance to the distinctive moustache and hairline of the World War Two German Fuhrer. But when she realised the cat also had similar characteristics to the totalitarian leader, namely, his bad temper, the comparison became spookily real.

Lauren Fletcher, who has 20 years of experience at NASA, plans to fly drones a couple of metres above the ground to fire biodegradable, nutrient-rich seed pods into it. Mr Fletcher, CEO of Oxford-based BioCarbon Engineering, believes their approach cuts the cost of tree planting by nearly 90 per cent and increases rates of tree-planting 15 times. Now their team of engineers, scientists, environmental and policy experts intend to make their vision a reality which will require 50 teams of workers to plant 72,000 trees a day.

The gymnastic silhouette of Daniel Sromek is a stark contrast to the beautiful colours of the Mediterranean dusk. Daniel, 26 from Poland, was precariously perched 50 metres up the Grande Grotta on the Greek island of Kalymnos. The stunning photographs were shot by Polish photographer Adam Kokot at the third time of asking. Adam, 34, said: ÒIt was incredible watching Daniel climb the Grande Grotta. ÒIt only took him 20 minutes to get to the top so I had to be quick to take his photo. ÒHe is such an experienced climber that, when he started doing star shapes, I wasnÕt worried for him. ÒHe does crazy stuff like that all the time.Ó Grande Grotta towers over the beautiful village of Masouri on the west coast of the island. Despite being a Greek island, Kalymnos is only 25 miles off the Turkish resort of Bodrum and once belonged to the Ottoman Empire. Adam said: ÒKalymnos is one of the best climbing destinations in Europe. ÒIt has thousands of trails with amazing views. ÒUnfortunately, it took three attempts to get photos of Daniel.
