- The China National Space Administration (CNSA) announced on Wednesday that the unmanned Tianwen-1 mission has mapped the entire Mars surface, successfully completing its planned scientific exploration tasks.
- Tianwen-1’s orbiter was able to gather imagery data after circling the Red Planet over 1,300 times while a robotic rover, Zhurong, collected data on the surface.
- Among the orbiter’s significant captures was China's first photographs of the Martian South Pole, where nearly all of the planet’s water resources are locked.
- Tianwen-1 also captured photographs of the 2,485-mile canyon Valles Marineris, impact craters Arabia Terra situated in the north of Mars, the edge of the Maunder crater and a top-down view of the large shield volcano Ascraeus Mons located in the Tharsis region.

First off, let’s get the terminology out of the way. If you’re not familiar with what “fappening” means, it’s an activity where people expose themselves to one another for fun or for voyeurism. A Fappening blog is an online community where members post sexy pictures of themselves and their partners.The Fappening Blog
The Fappening Blog is a great site for fans who want to see leaked celebrity photos. It features thousands of pictures and videos of celebrities in sexy outfits and doing the deed. However, it’s important to note that the pictures and videos are not always of high quality, as they’re often self-shot or from home-made photoshoots.
In an Instagram post, Mary Grace Pingoy, a photographer from Indiana, declared that Peik Lin, the hilarious sidekick to Constance Wu’s Rachel Chu, was her favorite character.
Vincent Dolman published a series of photos documenting the unusual yet interestingly beautiful love of holding hands among Indian men as they walk the busy streets of India.
The London-based celebrity and fashion photographer was inspired to document this cultural norm after he photographed two men holding hands.

North Korea may still be in the process of opening its borders to the outside world — to the U.S., at least — but it already has something other than McDonald’s it welcomes without fuss: a social media star.

Who would have thought that her photos — ethereal, whimsical and thought-provoking — were actually taken from her backyard?
Ever wonder what Asian seniors street fashion is like for those living in various Chinatowns across the United States? Well, wonder no more.
Friends and bloggers Valerie Luu and Andria Lo, who are both second-generation Asian-Americans, document the fashion style of seniors in several Chinatowns located in the U.S., which they then post to their blog, Chinatown Pretty. Images are also posted to their Instagram as well.
Engagement photos can be quite boring at times (unless you have an amazing wedding photographer) — all the cheesy, often forced, smiles, awkward poses that ultimately all look the same in the end. This is why Jackie Nguyen and her fiance, Nate Huntley, decided to make theirs super unique.
With the help of their photographer friend Isaac James, the couple of four years from Queens, New York, spent the last year doing their own series of quirky engagement photos that will make many nerds cry with envy.
“Nate and I are huge nerds,” Nguyen said in an interview with HuffPost. “We are completely obsessed with the majority of couples we paid tribute to and have a genuine love for being a bit kooky. We’ve even tried to invite Macaulay Culkin to our wedding using our photos. Not sure if he’ll accept, but it’s worth a shot.”
What they tried to pull was not easy, especially for couples who are on a very tight budget. Luckily, their friends in the arts industry all pitched in with costumes to help Nguyen and Huntley, who are both actors, with their engagement photos.
Some of the duos that they pretended to be during their photo shoot include:
Doc Brown and Marty McFly from “Back to the Future”.
Legendary artist couple Yoko Ono and John Lennon of The Beatles.
Dr. Ellie Sattler and Dr. Alan Grant from the hit dinosaur movie “Jurassic Park” – with a special appearance by their friend Sabrina Olivieri in dinosaur costume.
The Wet Bandits, Harry and Marv, from the classic Christmas movie “Home Alone” and “Home Alone 2”.
Agent Peggy Carter and Steve Rogers from “Captain America”.
Diane Nguyen and BoJack Horseman.
Thor and a Griffyndor wizard from “Harry Potter”.
Miranda Hillard and “Mrs. Doubtfire”.
Jack and Rose from the hit romantic movie “Titanic”.
Sally and Linus from “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”.
And lastly, Dwight Schrute and Michael Scott from the hit comedy series “The Office”.
The couple’s engagement photos are, hands down, incredible! Who knows what they might come up with on their big day, which will be held in Columbus, Ohio, in April. While speaking with HuffPost, Nguyen hinted out that it’s not going to be an ordinary wedding.
“We have the most outlandish and fun things planned for the wedding, some of which are surprises that we can’t reveal,” she explained. “What we can say is that it is a Chex Mix of Willy Wonka meets Christmas meets a magical carnival.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
