Nancy Gibbs to Leave TIME After 32 Years
Nancy Gibbs sent the following note to TIME Staff Tuesday night. She first joined TIME in 1982 and became TIME’s Editor-in-Chief in 2013. Team TIME: In the fall of 2013, when I became Editor-in-Chief, more than half of you were working somewhere else. You came to help us tell great stories in brand new ways: When we all set out together, we had never been nominated for a Primetime Emmy, or done a live broadcast from the International Space Station, or convinced three refugee families to let us spend an entire year telling the story of their exodus from a war zone, or shot a dozen covers on an iPhone.

Here ’s Where You Can See Every Total Solar Eclipse for the Next 50 Years
A total solar eclipse will obscure the sun in parts of 14 states across the U.S. on Aug. 21, a rare event that’s been called the “Great American Eclipse.” You can find a detailed map showing the path of the eclipse here. But if you live in a place that won’t see the total eclipse or even a partial eclipse, don’t worry: It won’t be the last time the U.S. — and the rest of the world — will get a chance to see the moon block the sun in the coming decades. The next total solar eclipse to cross the U.S. will take place in seven years, and even before then total eclipses will take ...

Navigation Error Forces SpaceX to Delay Space Station Shipment
(CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.) — A navigation error forced SpaceX to delay its shipment to the International Space Station on Wednesday, following an otherwise flawless flight from NASA’s historic moon pad. SpaceX’s supply ship, the Dragon, was less than a mile from the orbiting outpost when a problem cropped up in the GPS system. The approach was aborted, and the Dragon backed away. NASA said neither the station nor its six-person crew was in any danger. Just a few hours earlier, Russia successfully launched a cargo ship from Kazakhstan, its first since a failed launch in December. SpaceX launched the Dragon cap...

But not everything about the image ― a photo taken by artist Julian Charrière ― is quotidian. Splotches of light festoon the serene setting, as if its been doused with spilled bleach. And, in fact, the chemical look of the photo is the result of toxic exposure: Charrière covered the film in radioactive soil, found at the site where the picture was taken.
