Largest glacier calving event ever recorded!

"On May 28, 2008, Adam LeWinter and Director Jeff Orlowski filmed a historic breakup at the Ilulissat Glacier in Western Greenland. The calving event lasted for 75 minutes and the glacier retreated a full mile across a calving face three miles wide. The height of the ice is about 3,000 feet, 300-400 feet above water and the rest below water." Watch to the end to see a time-lapse version, with a comparison of the island of Manhattan. Whoa.

Entangled dolphin seeks assistance from diver

A wild dolphin entangled in fishing line and a hook, approaches diver Keller Laros, positioning its body to allow him to remove them. Amazing footage.

Let's get our oceans clean and safe for everyone, OK people?

High Rez Tycho Crater

If you are a fan of the Moon, and who isn't, check out this high-rez zoomable image of Tycho Crater. Love this boulder in a "small" crater at the top of the crater's central peak!
