Pink Floyds Inflatable Pig Battersea Power Station

A 40-foot long inflatable pig suspended between two of the chimneys at Battersea Power Station, London, during a photoshoot for the cover of Pink Floyd's album 'Animals', 6th November 1976. Whether it was an epic publicity stunt or a genuine mishap remains a topic of debate in some circles. Either way, the cover shoot for 1977's Animals became one of Pink Floyd's signature moments.
Roger Waters and artist Aubrey Powell, co-founder of the art group Hipgnosis, came up with the concept of an inflatable pig floating over Britain's iconic Battersea Power Station. But things didn't go as planned at the December 1976 photo shoot, as the 40-foot balloon broke from its moorings on one of Battersea's southern chimneys, rising directly into the path of planes landing at Heathrow Airport. All flights were grounded, and Powell was arrested, even as police helicopters and the Royal Air Force arrived to chase the pig. It eventually fell to the ground miles way in Kent.

Parable Of The Talents

An engraved depiction of The parable of the talents from the New Testament Book of Matthew 25:14-30, circa 1700. The parable tells of three servants, each entrusted with varying sums of money (the talents), who either put their money to work, or in the case of the third, lazy servant, simply bury it for safe keeping. The scroll at the top of the image is a dedication to the sponsor of the illustration, William Penn (1644 - 1718). (Photo by Hulton Archive/Getty Images)

Nares Expedition

circa 1875: Members of a British expedition to the Arctic, led by the Scottish explorer Sir George Strong Nares (1831 - 1915). Nares joined the navy in 1846 after training at the Royal Naval College and served as mate on his first voyage on board 'Resolute' during its survey of the Arctic. He also served during the Crimea and took part in expeditions to Australia and the Mediterranean. Nares later revisited the Arctic and sailed through the Magellan Straits but is best remembered for commanding 'Challenger' during her round-the-world trip to produce an oceanographic survey for the Admiralty and the Royal Society. The results of the voyage filled 50 volumes. (Photo by Hulton Archive/Getty Images)
