The arctic is warming—more than twice as fast as the rest of the planet. As increasingly frequent lightning strikes near the North Pole, experts warn it could trigger more wildfires, and more warming, in the years ahead.
Sometimes, photos of Earth can look so beautiful you don't even believe the images are from this planet. Count these pics of the Svalbard Satellite Station among that group. It sits just 745 miles from the North Pole: 📸: Reuben Wu
