On this day (28th May) in 1936 Alan Turing published his paper, “On Computable Numbers…”
Turing was an English computer scientist, mathematician, logician, cryptanalyst and theoretical biologist. He was highly influential in the development of theoretical computer science, providing a formalisation of the concepts of algorithm and computation with the Turing machine, which can be considered a model of a general purpose computer. Turing is widely considered to be the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence.

Here, an image from inside Microsoft’s mega data centre in Quincy, Washington.

Browse natgeo's Instagram Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) - The Monte Corona (Crown Mountain) lava tube system on the Canary island of Lanzarote is one of the world’s classic lava tubes. This lava tube was formed during the eruptions of Monte Corona volcano some 3,000 - 4,500 years ago. Pictured here, a cave explorer wades through one of the many long lakes deep inside Cueva Los Lagos lava tube. Although surface temperatures are stiflingly hot on this Spanish Canary island, the water is icy cold and comes as quite a shock. 1524552246649196579_787132

The show exposes the true path of conflict gold that is used for our jewelry, our phones and computers.  It was one of the most exciting shoots of our lives as we documented as many sides of the story as possible, visiting warlords deep in the jungle of North Kivu as well as government certified 'conflict free' gold mines.  The man pictured paused for a moment in the middle of his manual labor in one of the government mines we visited.  There is a lot to this important story, watch the show Monday night to find out more! #conflictgold #DRC #congo ~

Browse natgeo's Instagram Photo by @petekmuller. Ben Van Der Waal, a South African Ichthyologist (fish biologist) climbs out of the Cubango river in Angola after an evening collecting specimens. Ben has been collecting fish species in southern Africa for nearly 40 years. He and a team of other field biologists and botanists form a critical component of the @intotheokavango Wilderness Project which aims, in part, to chart biodiversity along the major tributaries leading into the Okavango Delta in northern Botswana. Evening sampling with Ben and his colleague, Paul Skelton, is one of my favorite activities on the expedition. #intotheokavango #cubango2017 #expedition #biodiversity #science #Angola #Cubango #river #Africa #adventure 1524042568140038422_787132

Browse natgeo's Instagram Photograph by @thomaspeschak In the Galápagos some groups of sea lions have learned how to hunt yellowfin tuna. In small bands they intercept the schools and drive them into convoluted dead end bays. The sea lions trap them in crevices or push them onto rocky shores where they dispatch the fish with a bite to the head. Shot on assignment for @natgeo magazine in 2016. I believe this is the first time that this behavior has been photographed. Check out the June 2017 issue of @natgeo magazine for my story on Galápagos and climate change.

Browse natgeo's Instagram A crocodile enters Kariba Lake in Zimbabwe - photo by @shaulschwarz - Lake Kariba was filled between 1958 and 1963 following the completion of the Kariba Dam , it is the world's largest man-made lake and reservoir by volume. Before Lake Kariba was filled, the existing vegetation was burned, creating a thick layer of fertile soil on land that would become the lake bed. As a result, the ecology of Lake Kariba is vibrant. A number of fish species have been introduced to the lake, notably the sardine-like kapenta (transported from Lake Tanganyika), which now supports a thriving commercial fishery. Other inhabitants of Lake Kariba include Nile crocodiles and hippopotami. 1523733177612292926_787132

Browse natgeo's Instagram Photo by @amivitale for @natgeo. Wildlife keeper Dorothy works as nutritionist feeding the baby elephants at Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) in Northern Kenya, the subject of a story I am very excited to share this week for National Geographic. "Before I was afraid of wild animals, especially elephants, but now I see them differently," she told me. "The sanctuary has changed my feelings about elephants. And they are helping our own children to become healthier too. Our culture from Samburu is being promoted." Follow Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e)  and help the local Samburu community save what is left. What’s happening here at Reteti, without fanfare, is nothing less than the beginnings of a transformation in the way Samburus relate to wild animals they have long feared.

A large Tiger Shark swims alongside a diver in the Bahamas. With the Tiger Shark once considered the most dangerous shark species in tropical waters, researchers are just now beginning to understand behaviors that were once a mystery. 
Despite being large predators, life in the ocean is difficult, and these creatures face many challenges in order to survive. As with all species of shark, the Tiger Shark faces declining populations worldwide due to the continued demand for shark fins. Photographed on assignment for @NatGeo Magazine.

This photo appears on the back cover of my new book - entitled ‘SHARK’ - which will be available on June 13th wherever books are sold. This book is filled with photos of sharks, and it chronicles my personal journey of photographing sharks worldwide over the past 40 years.

After a spectacular wildflower season, the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve Center in the Mojave Desert closed its doors, scheduled to reopen in February 2018. Here is a selection of 4 images I have taken during short trips to Antelope Valley last month. Due to the heavy precipitation during the rainy season, the poppy bloom blanketed the rolling desert hills of the valley but often closed early as a result of cold winds.

Browse natgeo's Instagram Brighton West Pier, East Sussex, UK
by @simoncroberts from the series #Pierdom
For almost a century and a half the West Pier has been Britain’s most iconic pier. Renowned for its wonderful architectural style, it has been visited and enjoyed by millions. Today its sculptural remains casting an eerie beauty over the seafront. The British pleasure pier follows the story of Britain’s relationship to the seaside, from the early links with the Romantics, to the engineering feats and technical advancement of the Industrial Revolution. They bear witness to the growth of the coast as a pleasure destination for a monied elite, as well as the working class’ enthusiasm for the seaside brought on by the development of the railways and the bank holiday ruling. Britain’s piers trace our changing economic fortunes too, from post-war boom to economic downturn, and now a slow re-awakening of our appreciation of these cultural and historic landmarks.
