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?

Be sure to RSVP for these events on the NASA JPL channel here: http://www.ustream.tv/nasajpl.

Awesome Animal Cam of the Week: Seven Kittens

Posted on by

What’s small, furry and CUTE all over?

Our newest animal cam Seven Kittens!

On June 7th, Noodles the cat gave birth to seven little bundles of joy and thus the Seven Kitten Cam was born!

[clear here] The camera is located in Pittsburgh, PA where some good samaritans rescued a then-pregnant Noodles so she would have a safe place to have her babies.

Highlight: Cute kittens catch some zzz’s

[clear here] It is believed that all the kittens with orange variations are boys, and the two Tortoiseshell kittens are female. All the kittens are nameless except for the first kitten to be adopted Taco (he’s the biggest orange one with stripes and white feet).

From feline affionados to 9-5 professionals, we can all agree we have found our new obsession!
