A journalist, wearing slippers to protect the glass floor, stands in the "Step into the Void" installation during a press visit at the Aiguille du Midi mountain peak above Chamonix, in the French Alps, on December 17, 2013. The Chamonix Skywalk is a five-sided glass structure installed on the top terrace of the Aiguille du Midi (3842m), with a 1,000 meter drop below, where visitors can step out from the terrace, giving the visitors the impression of standing in the void. The glass room will open to the public on December 21, 2013. (Reuters/Robert Pratta)

Residents run from a fire at a gasoline and oil shop in Aleppo's Bustan Al-Qasr neighborhood, on October 20, 2013. Witnesses said the fire was caused by a bullet fired by a sniper loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad at the Karaj al-Hajez crossing, a passageway separating Aleppo's Bustan al-Qasr, which is under the rebels' control and Al-Masharqa neighborhood, an area controlled by the regime.

Miles Scott, dressed as Batkid, walks with Batman before saving a damsel in distress in San Francisco, on November 15, 2013. San Francisco turned into Gotham City on that day, as city officials helped fulfill Scott's wish to be "Batkid." Scott, a leukemia patient from Tulelake in Northern California, was called into service on Friday morning by San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr to help fight crime, The Greater Bay Area Make-A-Wish Foundation said.

In a natural color mosaic, Saturn eclipses the Sun as seen by NASA's Cassini spacecraft on July 19, 2013. This image spans about 404,880 miles (651,591 km) across. Earth is barely visible as a single pixel just below the main rings, and to the right of the planet. At this point, Cassini was looking back from more than 898 million miles (1.5 billion km) away from Earth. More details and larger versions here. (AP Photo/NASA/JPL-Caltech/SSI)
