Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) // Scientists are dwarfed by giant ice formations towering above them inside Schwarzmooskogel Eishöhle in Austria. Mountain regions respond sensitively to climate change. Taking advantage of Alpine caves, a team of scientists from the University of Innsbruck are working to understand how permafrost has evolved through time. Ice caves form through a combination of snow intrusion and/or congelation of water infiltrating a karst system. Often up to several centuries old, the climate record of this ice remains largely under-studied. Today we are also able to tell if a cave was an ice cave in the past. This is achieved by looking for cryogenic cave calcites. These form when water enters a cave, and freezes and turns to ice. In this process, the water becomes progressively enriched in ions to the point that it becomes super-saturated.

Photo by @CristinaMittermeier | The headdresses of tribeswomen in Papua New Guinea are prized possessions, crafted from feathers of various birds of paradise. What I love about this photo is how the decorative colors highlight her eyes. I’ve always had a fascination with people’s eyes when I’m photographing them. I find that they visually reveal the most about a person and remind me of our common humanity. #FollowMe at @CristinaMittermeier for more portraits from the ends of the Earth. #PapuaNewGuinea #colourful #headdress #portrait #photography

Workers are strapped in 400 feet above the ground so they can install LED lights on the side of this building in Hanoi, Vietnam. Completing the task for 30 stories will take about a week.

#NatGeoHoy | Día de la Conciencia por los Pingüinos 🐧
Más de la mitad de las colonias de pingüinos están amenazadas y en declinación. Esto se debe al cambio climático, la contaminación y la industria pesquera, entre otros factores. El explorador de National Geographic Pablo Borboroglu (@pabloborboroglu), lidera la @globalpenguinsociety e impulsa  la conservación de esta especie ¡Súmate a la causa!

For the past five years, artist Parth Kothekar (@parthkothekar) has hand-carved creations, each from a single sheet of paper. It takes him about three weeks to sketch 20 to 30 designs. Then, Parth, 27, selects his 10 favorite ones and starts cutting away. Each papercut can take up to an entire week to complete, down to the last detail.
Although Parth’s intricate masterpieces might seem frail, the women they depict are anything but. “I was brought up seeing the struggle of my mother,” he says. “That’s why I always create female characters. I wanted to show them as powerful and strong through my artwork.” See how these intricate papercuts are made, today on our story.
