Uno Stregatto cosmico, disegnato da antiche galassie

Omaggio ai 100 anni della teoria della relatività<p>Come lo Stregatto di Alice nel Paese delle Meraviglie, un gruppo di antichissime galassie appare ai …

Photo: @chrisburkard This image was shot in Landmannalaugar during August when the peak of the flora and fauna blooms are most vibrant. Aerial views of glacial rivers is something everyone should witness when they visit Iceland. Deep black volcanic soil and hues of vibrant green and milky blue collide with one another to create a scenery that you simply can't find anywhere else in this world.

Photo: @chrisburkard The Lofoten Island in the north of Norway only see the sun for around 5 months each year. Luckily the reward for the long months of darkness is this natural phenomenon filling the night sky with surreal colors; the Northern Lights. No matter how many times I see them, I never get tired of the view.

Photo @tbfrost | Well, my first assignment for Nat Geo magazine is over. I'm sitting at the airport in Addis Ababa, capital of Ethiopia, waiting for my flight home to Virginia. Lots to think about and reflect on. Mostly I'm thinking about what my editors will think of the photos I got with colleague @jtkerby . I'm also missing Guassa, the wild plateau where I spent the last 6 weeks living with a herd of gelada monkeys and two very cool researchers. Here is a photo from my last day in Ethiopia. The weather was terrible: Cold and foggy and raining. But it was nice in a weird way. I'm @tbfrost if you want to see what I get into next.

Photo @ladzinski / The gnar-wall tower, deep in the southern fjords of #greenland. Photographed during a climbing expedition, these remote fjords are some of the most beautiful and untouched places I have ever visited. It's a place that is changing drastically. With glacier and sea ice melting rapidly the ocean is absorbing more energy from the sun resulting in warmer air which in effect is creating faster thaw in permafrost. Permafrost melt creates a high release of methane in both the air and in water. This cycle increases weather patterns trapping in warmer temperatures, perpetuating and increasing the melt. As we see more permafrost exposed the result is quite beautiful and lush, but a finite scenario. As ice melts tundra fields will slowly dry out leaving behind a barren desert, effecting the wildlife and marine life as a result. This beauty we see here is fleeting, and if forecasts are true much will be gone in the next 50 years. This beauty is seen at a high price leaving big question marks as to what the future may hold.

Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) - During last summer, a team of five scientists and explorers, funded by the National Geographic Committee for Research and Exploration embarked on an expedition to sample some of the most northerly explored caves on the planet for climate research. The @negreenland_caves project successfully documented 26 caves and collected calcite samples, which will inform us about Greenland’s climate during the past.
