The Revolution Won’t Be Televised: It Will Be Ustreamed from Your Smartphone

As a swarm of police invaded the thousands of Ukranian protestors before his very eyes, citizen broadcaster Aronets realized he had to take action. With no TV station crew or news reporters in sight, the world sat unaware as a nation demanded change from their government, and faced fierce retaliation. Before your imagination takes this story into Rambo mode, or any McGyver tactics to save the day, Aronets utilized a device each of use in our everyday lives (sorry James Bond). By simply using his smart phone and the Ustream Broadcaster App, Aronets placed a bright spotlight on the political unrest currently escalating in the Ukraine. LIVE. Before you scoff at the notion of live news, remove from your mind the traditional image of a rain soaked TV reporter being whisked away by strong storm winds. Thanks to technology, and the power of social media, not only can breaking events spread quickly via word of mouth, we now have the privilege to witness history through the eyes of the common man. In real time. This unprecedented, instantaneous access to the world is a concept assisting citizens of various nations, by giving transparency to their plights for democracy.

LAUNCH: Explore.org Polar Bear Week

Posted on by

Starting Tuesday, November 14th, Explore.org will bring Ustream viewers an intimate look at a bunch of seemingly cuddly (and might we add lethal) polar bears from Wapusk National Park in Cape Churchill, Canada. The bears traditionally gather there starting in October, waiting for enough ice to form in the Hudson Bay so they can feast on fat, juicy seals for the winter. However, ice melt due to rising global temperatures has been the single greatest threat to their survival. Explore, in partnership with Polar Bears International and Frontiers North, hope that revealing the bears in their natural habitat and exposing them to a worldwide audience will inspire people to become involved in preservation and ensure the continued survival of these arctic giants.

Got questions? Daily moderated chats with polar bear experts will take place between 10am PT and 1pm PT, so be sure to tune in daily right here.

Get excited: The Mars rover landing will be live on Ustream

Posted on by

With the Mars Rover scheduled to make its historic landing on the red planet on August 5, we’re in a total space frenzy. And thanks to our partnership with the space junkies at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (that’s JPL for short) we’re excited to offer a series of live events, tweetups, and chats leading up to the big landing!

About the mission: The dune buggy-sized Curiosity has been in transit since it launched in November of 2011. Once it lands, it will be able to collect and record valuable information about the rocks and soil of Mars that could help us understand whether the atmosphere ever supported microbial life. Yes, this means we may finally be able to answer David Bowie’s age-old question: Is there life on Mars?
