UK heatwave, Mars robots and endangered tiger cubs | The best images in science this week

This week, the UK endured a record-breaking heatwave which has also been affecting vast swathes of Europe, with numerous damaging wildfires affecting many countries, including France, Spain, Portugal, Greece and Italy. Temperatures in the UK hit 40°C in a number of locations, while in Portugal, a temperature of 47°C was recorded.

In happier news, three critically endangered Sumatran tiger cubs made their first public appearance this week at London Zoo. The tigers, who are on the IUCN red list of threatened animals, are so far developing well.

If you are a fan of stargazing, or even just looking to make a wish or two, the Perseid meteor shower started this week, and should be visible for a number of weeks.
