Sharbat Gula is an Afghan woman who was the subject of a famous photograph. The image itself was named "the most recognized photograph" in the history of National Geographic magazine.


I was thinking of posting this. Thought I would add her follow up photo many years later.

Not the one I was thinking of, but I see from a google search that there are several.

The image I had in mind, I'm pretty sure was taken from the surface of the moon by one of the astronauts. The Earth is just clearing the horizon...

In the above unusual photo taken in 1932, the 70-year old Dr. Evan O’Neill Kane of Kane, Pennsylvania operated upon himself for inguinal hernia. When performing the complicated surgery Kane was very relaxed and even joking as he came within millimeters of important blood vessels. Because of the close proximity to the femoral artery it was a particularly delicate operation which Kane performed it in just under two hours.

Eleven years prior he removed his own appendix using only a local anesthetic.

Greatest stunt of all time (For now)

Red Bull Stratos was a space diving project involving Austrian skydiver Felix Baumgartner. On 14 October 2012, Baumgartner flew approximately 39 kilometres (24 mi) into the stratosphere over New Mexico, United States, in a helium balloon before free falling in a pressure suit and then parachuting to Earth. Reaching 1,342.8 km/h (834.4 mph)—Mach 1.24—Baumgartner broke the sound barrier on his descent, thus becoming the first human to do so without any form of engine power.

A Canadian finishes his 8611 m expedition - climbing K2 (also known as the Savage Mountain), the second highest mountain on earth after Mount Everest, located on the border between Baltistan - in the Gilgit-Baltistan region- of Pakistan and the Taxkorgan Tajik Autonomous County of Xinjiang, China. According to Wikipedia, it is most dangerous to climb K2 from the Chinese side so it is mostly climbed from the Pakistani side using the Abruzzi Spur route. It has never been climbed in winter, and its reported that for every 4 people who have reached the summit, one has died trying. K2 is one of the peaks of the 'Karakoram' - north of the Himalaya range ; the majority of the highest peaks are in the Gilgit-Baltistan region, Pakistan - also used by Pakistan's armed forces for training.

Good thread.

Probably the most horrific image from the Vietnam War. The photo was simply titled "Napalm Girl".

The girl in the center was burned so badly across her back she shed her clothing as she ran away. She is now a Canadian citizen.


Here she is 40 years later:
