Friday’s Pictures in the News begins in England, where a race-goer dons a horse’s head during Investec Ladies’ Day at the Epsom Racecourse.  Queen Elizabeth II kicks off a long weekend of celebrations of her 60-year reign by going to the races.

For those of you who plan to be around in 4 billion years – watch out! The Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore announced that the Andromeda and Milky Way galaxies are on a collision course and will crash head-on about then. Mark your calendars.

We have contrasting images for International Children’s Day, with Kosovo Albanian children dressed as ballet dancers in Pristina and a Pakistani child lying in a bed outside her home in a slum on the outskirts of Islamabad.

Elsewhere, Pope Benedict XVI delivers a message to the faithful at the Lourdes Grotto in the Vatican’s gardens; a world record attempt for most humans forming the Olympic Rings with over 6,000 people taking part at Crosby Beach in Liverpool; and Maria Sharapova of Russia wins her match with Ayumi Morito of Japan in the second round of the French Open tennis tournament at Roland Garros in Paris.
