In 1968, during a routine space walk, the Russian cosmonaut Ivan Istochnikov and his dog went missing. When Soyuz 3 was dispatched to find them, its crew found only a vodka bottle containing a note, floating outside the empty, meteorite-damaged ship.

Nothing was heard about Istochnikov for nearly three decades: it was as though the Soviet authorities had airbrushed their cosmonaut from history. Then, in 1997, Catalan photographer Joan Fontcuberta investigated Istochnikov's disappearance, exhibited documentary evidence about his life and published a book called Sputnik the Odyssey of the Soyuz II, which included photographs of the Istochinikov family, meteorite fragments and the dented spacecraft.

What is equivalence and why should I care?

DP Review News - Mon, 07/07/2014 - 11:00

Equivalence, at its most simple, is a way of comparing different formats (sensor sizes) on a common basis.

Sport picture of the day: king of the Dales

Everyone knew that Yorkshire would welcome the Tour de France with open arms, but nobody could have predicted it would be quite like this. Thousands thronged to the Dales, and made the third category Buttertubs pass look like Alpe D'Huez.
