Defrosting a Building: Otherworldly Icescapes Inside a Historic Chicago Cold Storage Facility

For nine decades Fulton Market Cold Storage Company operated in Chicago’s meatpacking district with a full ten stories of freezing storage situated close to major railways. Last summer the company decided it was time to start fresh in a state-of-the-art facility outside of Chicago, so the building was sold to SRAM, a bike component manufacturer who will use the space for its global headquarters. Architects Perkins + Will were hired to help convert the ice-encrusted space into a new, modernized office building and were also tasked with the most epic refrigerator defrost in history. Luckily photographer Gary Jensen was asked to snap some incredible photos prior to the thawing which was actually caught on video. See more photos on his website.

Dazzling Displays of Aurora Borealis Dance Across the Night Sky

Dazzling Displays of Aurora Borealis Dance Across the Night SkyWhen the night sky began to fill with eerie green streaks of dancing light, astrophotographer Kwon O Chul turned his camera upwards to capture the dazzling display. Located near Yellowknife in northern Canada, the auroras were so incredibly bright that the Korean photographer needed only mere seconds to capture the luminous phenomenon, which is caused when solar winds are pulled into the earth's atmosphere by magnetic force and the sky illuminates with a powerfully mysterious veil of colors that move and flow overhead.

But along with the snow-capped mountain tops and ocean views come an abundance of mental and physical perks.

Here’s what hikers can teach the rest of us about leading a happier, healthier life.
