The Week in Pictures | Feb 28 – March 6, 2011

Every week we bring you the very best in visual journalism from around the world.

This week the conflict in Libya again took center stage as rebels gained control of cities to the east and west of the capital, Tripoli.

In California, a nine-story-tall rocket carrying an Earth-observation satellite dubbed Glory failed to reach orbit after its launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base and plunged into the South Pacific Ocean. Meanwhile, in the void of space, NASA astronauts Steve Bowen and Alvin Drew performed the STS-133 mission’s first spacewalk as construction and maintenance continued on the International Space Station.

In Madrid, Spanish bullfighter Manuel Jesus watched a bull take a tumble during the Winter Fair; a naturally mummified body was on display at the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology in Italy; and heavy rains triggered landslides in Bolivia, leaving two people dead and dozens injured.

In the land down under, crowds in Melbourne were treated to a simulated bombing raid by Royal Australian Air Force F-18s at the Australian International Airshow, and drag queens competed in a three-legged race on Sydney’s Bondi Beach during the Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.

There’s more — so much more — so, sit back, relax and take a visual journey around the globe. Enjoy.
