What's hidden under the Greenland ice sheet? | Kristin Poinar

What's hidden under the Greenland ice sheet? | Kristin Poinar

The Greenland ice sheet is massive, mysterious -- and melting. Using advanced technology, scientists are revealing its secrets for the first time, and what they've found is amazing: hidden under the ice sheet is a vast aquifer that holds a Lake Tahoe-sized volume of water from the summer melt. Does this water stay there, or does it find its way out to the ocean and contribute to global sea level rise? Join glaciologist Kristin Poinar for a trip to this frozen, forgotten land to find out.

How the oceans can clean themselves: Boyan Slat at TEDxDelft

How the oceans can clean themselves: Boyan Slat at TEDxDelft

18-year-old Boyan Slat combines environmentalism, entrepreneurism and technology to tackle global issues of sustainability. After diving in Greece, and coming across more plastic bags than fish, he wondered; "why can't we clean this up?" While still being on secondary school, he then decided to dedicate half a year of research to understand plastic pollution and the problems associated with cleaning it up. This ultimately led to his passive clean-up concept, which he presented at TEDxDelft 2012. Working to prove the feasibility of his concept, Boyan Slat currently gives lead to a team of approximately 50 people, and temporarily quit his Aerospace Engineering study to completely focus his efforts on The Ocean Cleanup. The progress of The Ocean Cleanup can be followed through www.theoceancleanup.com, www.facebook.com/TheOceanCleanup, as well as www.twitter.com/TheOceanCleanup. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Scientists Are Breeding Super Coral That Can Survive Climate Change | VICE on HBO

Scientists Are Breeding Super Coral That Can Survive Climate Change | VICE on HBO

They still look beautiful, but coral reefs are dying at staggering rates — experts project that 90 percent of the world's reefs will be gone by 2050. But a growing group of scientists around the world are searching for innovative solutions to make sure that doesn't happen. Coral reefs are among the earth’s most precious natural resources. They harbor a million species and provide food for 500 million people around the world. But warming waters, pollution and overfishing have badly damaged these precious ecosystems; roughly 50 percent of the world’s corals have been lost in just the last 30 years. “The rates of change in our environment are far outpacing the intrinsic capacity of coral reefs to survive.” said Dr. Ruth Gates, the Director of the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology, where she is pioneering research that could help corals survive. “If we don’t mitigate at all, coral reefs will not be the things we’re worrying about, it will be the survival of our species.” Dr. Gates is just one of the scientists devising innovative ways to take coral reef restoration into their own hands. Her lab has started to breed and distribute, "super coral" — the strongest breeds of coral that can thrive in warmer environments. And in Curaçao, a small coral rich island in the Caribbean Sea, a team of scientists are finalizing a technology that could distribute fertilized coral eggs across the ocean, repopulating reefs worldwide. VICE's Ben Anderson visited with scientists who are working around the clock to solve one of the most significant environmental problems of our time.

The deep ocean is the final frontier on planet Earth

The deep ocean is the final frontier on planet Earth

The ocean covers 70% of our planet. The deep-sea floor is a realm that is largely unexplored, but cutting-edge technology is enabling a new generation of aquanauts to go deeper than ever before. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 Beneath the waves is a mysterious world that takes up to 95% of Earth's living space. Only three people have ever reached the bottom of the deepest part of the ocean. The deep is a world without sunlight, of freezing temperatures, and immense pressure. It's remained largely unexplored until now. Cutting-edge technology is enabling a new generation of aquanauts to explore deeper than ever before. They are opening up a whole new world of potential benefits to humanity. The risks are great, but the rewards could be greater. From a vast wealth of resources to clues about the origins of life, the race is on to the final frontier The Okeanos Explorer, the American government state-of-the-art vessel, designed for every type of deep ocean exploration from discovering new species to investigating shipwrecks. On board, engineers and scientists come together to answer questions about the origins of life and human history. Today the Okeanos is on a mission to investigate the wreck of a World War one submarine. Engineer Bobby Moore is part of a team who has developed the technology for this type of mission. The “deep discover”, a remote operating vehicle is equipped with 20 powerful LED lights and designed to withstand the huge pressure four miles down. Equivalent to 50 jumbo jets stacked on top of a person While the crew of the Okeanos send robots to investigate the deep, some of their fellow scientists prefer a more hands-on approach. Doctor Greg stone is a world leading marine biologist with over 8,000 hours under the sea. He has been exploring the abyss in person for 30 years. The technology opening up the deep is also opening up opportunity. Not just to witness the diversity of life but to glimpse vast amounts of rare mineral resources. Some of the world's most valuable metals can be found deep under the waves. A discovery that has begun to pique the interest of the global mining industry. The boldest of mining companies are heading to the deep drawn by the allure of a new Gold Rush. But to exploit it they're also beating a path to another strange new world. In an industrial estate in the north of England, SMD is one of the world's leading manufacturers of remote underwater equipment. The industrial technology the company has developed has made mining possible several kilometers beneath the ocean surface. With an estimated 150 trillion dollars’ worth of gold alone, deep-sea mining has the potential to transform the global economy. With so much still to discover, mining in the deep ocean could have unknowable impact. It's not just life today that may need protecting; reaching the deep ocean might just allow researchers to answer some truly fundamental questions. Hydrothermal vents, hot springs on the ocean floor, are cracks in the Earth's crust. Some claim they could help scientists glimpse the origins of life itself. We might still be years away from unlocking the mysteries of the deep. Even with the latest technology, this kind of exploration is always challenging. As the crew of the Okeanos comes to terms with a scale of the challenge and the opportunity that lies beneath, what they and others discover could transform humanity's understanding of how to protect the ocean. It's the most hostile environment on earth, but the keys to our future may lie in the deep.

Amazing Octopus - Most Intelligent Animal on Earth? 1080p

Amazing Octopus - Most Intelligent Animal on Earth? 1080p

An incredible exploration of one of the ocean's most complex and enigmatic creatures, and a reminder why these beautiful animals should be protected and studied, not served at Sushi restaurants. Better audio and editing: https://youtu.be/GJor1sk_JDI Share this video with the world. How has the octopus become so intelligent and capable of thinking in the abstract? Watch fascinating and often hilarious experiments to see just how smart they are. After this video, you'll never think about the octopus the same. In this fascinating documentary we get to see how octopuses behave in the wild too. Off the coast of Vancouver Island, underwater divers are watched by a huge octopus - a ghost like creature that lurks until it feels it's safe to emerge and be seen. It's an eerie encounter. The octopus uses cognitive reasoning to make deductions and understand its environment. It can shape shift, change color and texture on the fly to blend in with its surroundings to become either predator or defend itself from becoming prey. In one experiment we see an octopus wrap its tentacles around a screw-top jar that has a crab inside it. In slow but determined fashion, the octopus successfully opens the jar to get to its prey. The jar is unlike anything it would encounter in the wild - the octopus has used cognitive reasoning, not instinct, to catch its well-deserved lunch. The octopus has lived side-by-side with humankind from our earliest days. But it's only now that we're beginning to unravel the animal's secrets, and the extent of its formidable brain-power. Watch as an octopus slips out of its tank and slithers casually across a concrete floor. Is it making a break for freedom? Not at all. It knows that its prey is just a short distance away in another tank. As we learn, the octopus can move on land as well as underwater and the little round trip it has taken is not just to get from point A to point B. It's also taking this little detour because it's curious about the world it is living in. It's hard to believe that this animal is simply a mollusk. As far as his family tree goes, the octopus is more closely related to an oyster or a snail than to any other species of animal. And yet, as octopuses behave like shape shifters, moving in and out of tiny openings to get their reward, they are working out solutions the way humans do. They are able to think in the abstract. Amazingly, with all its powerful traits, the octopus has never become king of the sea. Researchers think that it's because of the female's short life span. They give up everything, including their life, for their eggs. Just how has an animal that is so different from humans become so intelligent? From Spain to Vancouver Island and finally to Capri, Italy, follow scientists as they try to understand how the octopus has evolved to have such intelligence, even by our standards. #Octopus #IntelligentOctopus #OctopusIntelligence #AmazingOctopus

12 Mysterious Discoveries in Alaska

12 Mysterious Discoveries in Alaska

From the discovery of abandoned planes; to the mystery Grolar Bear Sighting; These are 12 MYSTERIOUS Discoveries in Alaska ! Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 12. Orange Slime 11. King Bear Skull 10. Giant Ragfish 9. New Species of Whale 8. Active Volcanoes 7. North America’s First Inhabitants 6. Grolar Bear Sightings So what do you get when you cross a polar bear and a grizzly bear? A grolar bear, or some people call them pizzly bears. Whichever name you choose to go with, these hybrids have been spotted roaming the wilderness and small villages in Alaska and they could become more of a common sight to behold. Polar bears appear to be losing food sources in the arctic circle and must head south in search of food or for mating. Residents of the isolated town of Barrow, Alaska, all the way up north claim that these two species have been mating and they give off a a beautiful golden appearance like we see here. It seems to be evidence of species having to adapt to their environments and these hybrids take hundreds of years to develop. 5. Atka Island Abandoned Plane Due to the sheer size of A laska, driving around streets to reach some destinations is basically impossible. This form of transportation is commonly used to deliver supplies to small towns despite the harsh weather. But this one we see here isn’t a cargo plane. In fact it’s a consolidated B-24 Liberator that was used as a heavy bomber in every branch of the US armed forces. It was often used in the campaign against the Japanese and in antisubmarine operations. This abandoned B-24 is found on the Aleutian Island of Atka and it was forced to crash land in 1942. It was on a weather reconnaissance mission but the weather was the one keeping it from landing at a designated runway. The pilot managed to escape with only a broken collarbone and the site has been managed to keep the plane preserved as a reminder of its service in WW2. 4. The Kruzof Island Discoveries Alaska is certainly home to some brutal winters and it almost seems like the last place you’d want to be stranded unless you are an experienced survivor. A sailing ship known as the Neva was famous for completing Russia’s first circumnavigation of the world between 1803 and 1807. Four years later when the ship was out at sea again a fierce storm struck off the coast of Alaska, causing the ship to sink. Only 28 out of the 47 crew members were able to make it to land but they would have to survive on a remote Alaska n island. Artifacts from the survivors show that they managed to craft tools from things such as nails in order to make fishing hooks. Other things you see in this such as musket balls, sheet copper, axe heads and spikes were discovered on Kruzof island. No skeletons were found, suggesting that they survived long enough to make it off the island. 3. Frozen Moose Discovery Normally when you think of Alaska, two things usually pop up in your head. Ice and moose, well here we got both! A teacher on a hike in Northwestern Alaska made a mysterious discovery in November of 2016 when he saw a pair of moose antlers popping up from the ground and went to go investigate. They found themselves a moose popsicle that was buried under 8 inches of ice in some parts. But wait there’s more. They found another frozen moose deeper under the ice with its antlers clashing against the other moose. They said they Their hypothesis was that the moose were getting into a fight, they stumbled into this freezing lake and drowned. 2. A Friendly Blackbear For many of you who live close to nature you might be a little more accustomed to seeing a site like this! Bears can be seen as a scary nuisance in Alaska but this one is just unbearably adorable. But for this particu lar bear found playing around in a backyard in Alaska, you might find it a tad mysterious but amazing at the same time. It’s seen playing around with an inflatable toy and even goes over to a swing set! Looks like this bear is just looking for a friend! 1.Eskimo Bronze Possibly the most mysterious artifact found in Alaska date back to 1400 years ago. It’s a bronze buckle found at Cape Espenberg that appears to have made it’s way there from China, well before the Bering Strait land bridge melted. Could the natives in this area have actually made contact with the Chinese! It appeared to have been older than the house they were originally excavating at least a few hundred year and metal crafting was really never apart of eskimo culture. Some believe that it’s likely that the ancient artifact was dropped by a Russian explorer or a whaler. But if that’s not the case, it could be evidence of an advanced trade route between Asia and Alaska during the Bronze age.

The LED Traffic Light and the Danger of "But Sometimes!"

You can support this channel on Patreon! Link below Around the mid-2000’s, the LED traffic light began making its way onto the scene. Recent developments in LED technology meant that energy efficient replacements for the standard incandescent lamp were beginning to appear. Municipalities rejoiced with the energy savings they provided, but in cold climates they weren’t met with quite as warm a welcome. Not producing sufficient heat to melt snow on their lenses, some drivers became confused by ambiguous signals and caused fatal accidents. This video tells the tale of why this newfound “problem” generated harsh criticism to the new technology, and explains why this reaction is entirely dumb and regressive.

How Earth Would Look If All The Ice Melted

How Earth Would Look If All The Ice Melted

We learned last year that many of the effects of climate change are irreversible. Sea levels have been rising at a greater rate year after year, and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change estimates they could rise by another meter or more by the end of this century. As National Geographic showed us in 2013, sea levels would rise by 216 feet if all the land ice on the planet were to melt.

Unbelievable Discoveries in the South Pacific

Unbelievable Discoveries in the South Pacific

From sunken treasures, to deep sea artifacts, these are 10 Unbelievable Discoveries in the South Pacific Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 5. New Zealand Sunken Treasure Divers who were cleaning a local harbor were rewarded with an amazing discovery of 868 gold coins! Finders Keepers! The harbor of Wellington has been quite messy lately and many glass bottles, and plastic materials were being removed but they never expected anything like this! They appear to be of high value but no one could figure out exactly why they were thrown away into the harbor. The crew couldn’t tell exactly where they were from and the coins origins are still somewhat of a mystery. After being down there for a long period of time, it’s believed the markings on them eroded. So we guess they won’t be giving them back to the original owner! 4. Vanuatu Skull Trying to piece together the history of pacific islands can be difficult at times due to the lack of stone structures. Besides the Tongan gate and Easter Island, there really isn’t a ton of evidence on their ancient ancestors. Things that can survive the test of time, are skeletons. This 3,000 year old skull you see in this photo, was separated from the body and placed in an ancient pot. This comes from the Lapita culture who lived on the island of Vanuatu. This civilization inhabited many of the south pacific islands like Samoa, Tonga and all the way to eastern coast of Papua New Guinea Extensive scientific research was done and it’s believed that the Lapita culture are originally descendants from the island of Taiwan. These were found at the bottom of a Cemetery on Efate Island. This discovery also leads archaeologists to conclude that the Lapita were the first settlers of these micro islands 3. Jungle Debris After all the intense fighting that took place in the South Pacific during world war two, there’s bound to be plenty of scraps from all kinds of military vehicles. People are still making discoveries of all the wreckage that took place between 1941-1945. Here in this photo we see an Imperial Japanese Fighter plane that was shot down during the Battle of Guadalcanal, in the Solomon Islands. Children on the islands still play at the beaches, right next the debris of a Japanese Imperial Navy transport vessel. The islands could be scared for quite some time, even 70 years later. With advancements in drones and aerial technology, they’re able to locate more wreckage than ever before, like this Sherman tank left in the shallow waters of the Northern Mariana Islands. 2. Radiation on Bikini Atoll Once the USA had captured much land in the South Pacific during world war II from the Japanese, they wanted to continue testing the weapons that won them the war to the absolute limit, and they would do so on their new territory. Bikini Atoll was where the US tested their most devastating weapons like the hydrogen bomb. Castle Bravo was the codename for the dry fuel hydrogen bomb that was detonated and the 2nd most power device ever detonated only behind russia’s tsar bomba. Bikini atoll was the site for 23 nuclear detonations. Researchers from Columbia University in the US recently discovered that the islands are still radioactive and no knows for sure when they’ll be safe to live here. 1. Chuuk Lagoon In 1944, there were more than 60 Japanese warships and 200 aircraft that met their watery grave in chuuk lagoon in the South Pacific, located west of Micronesia where an intense battle took place. This was one of Japan’s strategic bases that was wiped out by allied forces. On land, this place looks like a tropical paradise, but below the surface of the water lies the biggest graveyard of ships in the world. Due to its history and the spooky remains, it’s become a popular scuba diving location and left nearly untouched due to fear of bombs going off. It’s been rediscovered in recent years and explorers have had the opportunity to see the devastation. Here in this photo were see a tank covered in barnacles at the bottom of the lagoon. This photo here displays a car that was inside a Japanese ship that sank. Some scuba divers will even come across skulls.

Ocean Cleanup Launched A Plastic Catcher

Ocean Cleanup Launched A Plastic Catcher

The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is now twice the size of Texas and contains 1.8 trillion pieces of trash floating in the ocean. The Ocean Cleanup is an ambitious non-profit committed to removing it, and on Saturday it launches its first system out to sea from the San Francisco Bay. Dutch entrepreneur Boyan Slat came up with the idea when he was 16 years old. "I went scuba diving in Greece and I actually saw more plastic bags than fish around me," said the Ocean Cleanup CEO and founder. "I wondered, why can't we just clean this up?" He founded the organization in 2013 and the team has raised $35 million through crowdfunding campaigns and big donors like Marc Benioff and Peter Thiel. System 001 is a 600 meter long float, with a 3 meter skirt and it's designed to corral plastic and debris. The collected garbage will then be removed by garbage truck-like ships. The initial contraption will be used for testing and aims remove about 50 tons of the garbage, but the goal is to launch 60 systems to reduce the floating garbage patch by 50 percent in the next five years.» Subscribe to CNBC: http://cnb.cx/SubscribeCNBC About CNBC: From 'Wall Street' to 'Main Street' to award winning original documentaries and Reality TV series, CNBC has you covered.

IceCube Neutrino Observatory There are many different ways to make holes in the Earth as you know, or will soon learn. But for the University of Wisconsin, they wanted to do a study of the Earth from a different perspective. They decided to go to Antarctica and drill a massive hole into the very ice caps of the Earth to see what's down there. Thus, the IceCube Neutrino Observatory was made. 3. Kimberley Diamond Mine Also known as the Big Hole, the Kimberly diamond mine in South Africa, is home to the world’s largest diamond mine! It is so large it is visible by space and has produced some of the world’s largest diamonds. 2. Bingham County Mine Also known as the Kennecott Copper Mine in Utah, this mine definitely takes the cake. This copper mine has been in use for over a century, and it's still open to this day. It's the biggest copper mine in the world and provides about 25% of the country’s copper needs. 1. Kola Superdeep Borehole Have you ever wondered what's at the center of the Earth?

The Ocean Cleanup Technology, Explained

The Ocean Cleanup Technology, Explained

The ocean is big. Cleaning up the Great Pacific Garbage Patch using conventional methods - vessels and nets - would take thousands of years and tens of billions of dollars to complete. Our passive systems are estimated to remove half the Great Pacific Garbage patch in just five years, and at a fraction of the cost. Our first cleanup system will be deployed in the summer of 2018. This is how it works.

Baltimore City Trash Skimmer Boat in the Inner Harbor

Baltimore City Trash Skimmer Boat in the Inner Harbor

The rains on the morning of April 12, 2013 sent a torrent of trash down the Jones Falls and out into Baltimore Harbor. This trash boom collects some of the floating trash until the trash skimmer boats can come by and collect it. If people didn't throw their trash on the ground this entire process would be unnecessary.

Some believe Mars is the next home for Humanity. But the real “red planet” is a trickster; strikingly beautiful, yet sweetly sinister. Even as a growing armada of instruments arrive, this small cold world continues to conceal its secrets. The technological means to cross space and perhaps bring this small world back to life is just now coming within our grasp. Settlers beware: Mars is likely to change Humanity as much as we change it.

Great Pacific Garbage Patch cleanup has begun | Engadget Today

An ambitious project to clean up the 88,000 tons of plastic floating in the "Great Pacific Garbage Patch" has begun. On Sunday, the Ocean Cleanup Project started towing its "Ocean Cleanup System 001" from San Francisco to a trial site some 240 nautical miles (260 miles) away. Once it arrives, the wind and waves will push System 001 into a U-shape and it will slowly drift along on its own. A 10-foot long skirt hanging below will collect pieces of plastic as small as a millimeter in size, and smaller boats will later scoop them up and take them to shore for recycling.
