Okay, so that's not a real bear being arrested. But, in this week's image roundup, there is a very real and very adorable baby Tasmanian devil, plus gorgeous space pics, a book that collects every single color the human eye can perceive, a web of sensors that'll help you on dates, and much more.
We could've just added great photos of Neil Armstrong that popped up this week--and we did include a few--but we also have some great images from terra firma, including this self-conscious penguin, a surreal fireworks photo, an ominous take on Hurricane Isaac, and a controversial bike without pedals or a seat. Check out the gallery to see them all.
There's some history in this week's roundup of stunning images. For one, we have a photo of the Nevada atomic bomb tests from the '50s, taken from the Las Vegas strip. Alongside that we have what you see above: a nuclear power station still in use today. We're also featuring a Syrian rebel with a machine gun and cellphone, a psychedelic art project with water balloons and bald men, DIY lava, and more. Check out the gallery to see them all.
This week's images span quite a range. For one, we've got a distant galaxy drifting away from other heavenly bodies. But on the other end of that, we look at technology that can reconstruct a beard down to the hair. It also includes this amazing photo of an air force base, two retired space shuttles meeting face-to-face, and more. Click the gallery to see them all.

It wouldn't be right to go this week without a photographic look at the Olympics, so we've got this awesome fencing image, a shot of the competitor-tracking cameras, and the unlit Olympic flame. But there's also a lot more, including a 3-D supernova and a deadly typhoon in China. Check out the gallery to see them all.
A great roundup for you to end this steamy July week. We've got this tiny monkey, plus the world's oldest orangutan. There's awe-inspiring space pics and sassy tech infographics. It's all inside. Enjoy!
This week's roundup of the most amazing images we've seen this week zooms in, to see these stinkbug eggs up close--and then zooms out, to see an exoplanet, 33 light-years away. We go to the present, with the leg that'll help a double-amputee compete in the Olympic Games, and to the future, with a camera controlled by the movements of the human eye. Check 'em out.
This week's roundup of the best science images fits in a wide range. Above, we have a striking (non-Photoshopped!) look at the results of a toxic red spill in Hungary. But we've also included the first photo ever put on the Web -- which has aged just about as poorly as you'd expect. Plus electrified fish, spacecraft in transit, and more.
It was hard to fight off the temptation to make this week's roundup just a collection of fireworks shots, but we managed to also find the world's largest crocodile, a massive light installation in Singapore, protests against nuclear power in Japan, and a bunch more of the most amazing science and tech imagery out there.
A great roundup of images this week, from raging wildfires to nerds sky-diving out of planes while wearing futuristic augmented reality goggles to perhaps the first time the noble quokka has graced Popular Science. Also this baby crocodile.
This week we've got a couple of weird climate-related pics to go along with the great feature on the subject we ran earlier. That, plus: humpback whales en flagrante, an arctic blue marble, virtual reality, and pizza delivery. Check it out!
Thanks for joining us for Food Tech week! And now, a few food tech images, and also a lot of other great stuff--this jet breaking through the sound barrier, some pretty space pics, a gorgeous jellyfish that lives deep in an undersea canyon, and much more.
Today is the Images of the Week: Space Edition. There's this long-exposure shot, but also the Space Shuttle trudging past the Statue of Liberty, Venus passing over the sun, a gorgeous shot of the Sagittarius constellation, and many more. Also polar bears frolicking. Enjoy!
It's been a shortened workweek for us here in the U.S., but there's been no shortage of amazing science and tech imagery--from a rat that regained the power of movement to shoes made from custom-bred, genetically engineered stingrays to a gorgeous shot of the Pinwheel Galaxy. More in the gallery!
Five amazing, clean technologies that will set us free, in this month's energy-focused issue. Also: how to build a better bomb detector, the robotic toys that are raising your children, a human catapult, the world's smallest arcade, and much more.
