The colorful, plastic bubbles of Light Drift glow vivid blue and green in the dark. Light Drift was installed along the Charles River for the MIT150 FAST Light festival last weekend.



The final preparations are made to aFloat, an interactive installation in the MIT Chapel that simulated ripples in a pool of flickering lights.



Visitors play in the Gradated Field, one of the many FAST installations that appeared on campus in early May. Gradated Field was a collection of smooth, white plaster mounds formed by latex sheets.



East Campus and Maseeh Hall residents race land-yachts during REX on Tuesday. A frenzied week-long build followed EC’s challenge to Maseeh last week. Although both teams had produced fully functional yachts, there was not enough wind to race. The teams are looking forward to racing on the next windy day. Top: Maseeh students strap a rollerblade to their yacht. Bottom: EC and Maseeh racers gather outside 7-11 in Technology Square.



St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City grants visitors a grand view as they enter. The Basilica is the largest Christian church in the world and is regarded as one of Catholicism’s holiest sites.



Männlichen, Switzerland, affords tourists breathtaking mountain views. Here, you can clearly see lush green areas in lower elevations and crisp snow at much higher elevations, even in the summer months.



A crowd of party-goers cheers on two students wrestling in a tub of soap, water, and glitter during the East Side party on Monday, August 27.
