The loyal fans of the Chapecoense once more crowding the stands of their beloved football club. It's become a venue for collective mourning. Last week these fans were thrilled – the Chapecoense had made it to its first international final. Now, people can't believe their players won't be back again. The team's energetic fans chant their usual hymns, coming together for some cathartic release.

The planet's largest living structure struggling for survival. This coral should be alive with colour but it's bleached and barren. These scientists are part of a team that's assessed the health of the entire Great Barrier Reef – an area bigger than Britain – and here the prognosis is poor. On average, two-thirds of the coral in the northern section has died.

We've been space-bound since the 1950s, making amazing progress and countless scientific discoveries. But for every advance we've left something behind – space junk. At the University of Southampton, scientists are watching this waste. There are now thought to be 22,000 bits of space rubbish bigger than 10 centimetres.
