Beginning in the late 1990s with a polaroid camera, photographer David Axelbank has continued to capture the world’s flowers at night—from New York to Norfolk and Boston to Brazil.

Volcanoes Are So Hot Right Now

Another day, another volcano. Japan might even have a new island to add to their territory after an underwater volcanic eruption blasted rock above sea level earlier today. And did you hear about the newly discovered active volcano in West Antarctica? Hot.

Volcanos Erupting Everywhere!

Mt. Etna blew its top on Saturday in Sicily, and as we speak, Mount Sinabung is spewing ash all over Northern Sumatra. Is this the end of the world? Probably, but why should that bother us anyway?

Climate Change

Cold and wet and in an unfamiliar city, FUZI UVTPK and I were looking for a place to shelter us from the rain when we stumbled upon a series of greenhouses. The first contained temperate vegetation with cacti and succulents from the U.S. and Africa. (There is also annex of carnivorous plants that can be visited upon request.) The second housed a garden of tropical crop plants (coffee, cocoa and vanilla, for example), and the third featured orchids and ferns growing underneath the fronds of large palm trees, which had trunks wrapped in tropical vines.

Sunk: The Incredible Story About a Ship that Never Should Have Sailed by Kathryn Miles

When the Bounty went down during Hurricane Sandy, millions watched on TV as the Coast Guard rescued 14 survivors—but couldn’t save the captain and one of his crew. A huge question lingered in the aftermath: what was this vessel—a leaking replica built in 1960 for the film Mutiny on the Bounty—doing in the eye of the storm?
