The cutest animals on Twitter, Boeing’s new spacesuit, and other amazing images of the week

Zoos and aquariums across the country decided we needed an infusion of cuteness after this long week of political news. So they started a #cuteanimaltweetoff on Twitter, with each facility posting the cutest animal photo they have. If you need a bright spot in your day, this is sure to cheer you up. Here's a newborn female gray seal pup, born on Saturday at the National Zoo and posted on the Smithsonian's twitter account. H/T The New York Times Smithsonian/National Zoo
