May 28, 2011. Completed in 1986, the nuclear plant in Kalkar, Germany, was never opened. Today, it houses Wunderland Kalkar, an amusement park. One of the plant’s cooling towers contains this high-flying swing attraction.

This week: a merry-go-round turns inside a former nuclear plant; artillery fire along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border; a one-and-a-half year old boy is killed in Libya by Gaddafi’s forces, military maneuvers and youth movements in Spain; Indonesia’s dog slaughterhouses; The White Soldier; the spelling bee, and space shuttle Endeavour touches down for the final time.
