Hello, you watching new sound with

me, Ricky.

Hello, you watching

new sound with me, Ricky.

0:00:180:00:20

Now, Dancing On Ice is back

on our screens this evening.

0:00:200:00:22

If you thought the celebs were good,

take a look at some of these figure

0:00:220:00:26

skaters who are competing

in the Winter Olympics.

0:00:260:00:28

T hey've got more twists and turns

than you could possibly imagine.

0:00:280:00:31

They've got more twists and turns

than you could possibly imagine.

0:00:310:00:34

Sticking in Pyeongchang,

let's head outside to the snow,

0:01:220:01:24

and this 17-year-old American

sporting outsider who's blown

0:01:240:01:29

everyone away winning gold

in men's slopestyle.

0:01:290:01:32

He's called Red Gerrard

and you need to check this out.

0:01:320:01:40

Feels incredible.

0:01:540:01:55

I'm just really happy that I got

to land a run and I'm just, yeah,

0:01:550:02:00

I'm really excited right now.

0:02:000:02:02

I was surprised to even make it

to the finals at the Olympics

0:02:020:02:05

and to get first is above me.

0:02:050:02:07

I don't even know what's going on,

to be honest right now.

0:02:070:02:13

Wow, wasn't that incredible?

0:02:130:02:16

Sticking with the cold stuff,

there's something you've

0:02:160:02:18

got to check out over

at Newsround online.

0:02:180:02:20

A few weeks ago, we told

you about actor David Harbour's

0:02:200:02:23

campaign to go to the antarctic

to dance with penguins.

0:02:230:02:26

Well, he's on his way

there right now!

0:02:260:02:29

Check this out.

0:02:290:02:33

Now we've seen humans

walking on the moon,

0:02:330:02:34

but will it ever be possible

for that to happen on Mars?

0:02:340:02:38

It might sound like an idea

for a new sci-fi movie,

0:02:380:02:41

but a research team have been

spending time in the Oman desert

0:02:410:02:44

doing experiments that could one day

make that a reality.

0:02:440:02:52

Sending a man on a mission to Mars

has been the Spacek Laura's ambition

0:02:540:03:00

for years and these researchers are

hoping to make it a reality. They're

0:03:000:03:04

in the Oman desert in the Middle

East, doing experiments that could

0:03:040:03:08

one day help humans to survive on

the red planet.

But while man? We

0:03:080:03:13

need a place that looks as much as

Mars as possible. And we founded

0:03:130:03:19

here in Oman. It's a beautiful

place, but its most of all

0:03:190:03:24

scientifically useful place, and

operationally useful.

Although still

0:03:240:03:28

a distant dream, it felt a little

bit closer on Tuesday when this

0:03:280:03:33

company successfully launched the

world's most powerful rocket while

0:03:330:03:38

getting there is when macro

challenge but astronauts will also

0:03:380:03:41

be able to need to survive on Mars.

That's why these experiments are so

0:03:410:03:46

crucial.

Once we will go to Mars and

we will stay on Mars. We will have

0:03:460:03:50

to use the resources we find on

Mars, because we cannot bring

0:03:500:03:54

everything from Earth. That is

called in situ resource utilisation

0:03:540:04:00

so we have to use the things we find

there. First of all to sustain life

0:04:000:04:05

there, to sustain missions there and

then in the longer run, for other

0:04:050:04:09

things.

This vast desert is the

perfect spot to carry out tests like

0:04:090:04:14

growing vegetables and trying out

the bulky spacesuits. Who knows,

0:04:140:04:18

when macro J similar scenes could be

taking place on Mars.

0:04:180:04:21

taking place on Mars.

0:04:210:04:24

Now what do you get

if you have a sleepy kangaroo,

0:04:240:04:26

some partying astronauts

and a really long zipwire?

0:04:260:04:28

Strange, Stranger,

Strangest, of course!

0:04:280:04:35

This has to be one of

the cutest kangaroos ever.

0:04:350:04:38

When he gets tired, instead

of hopping into his mum's pouch,

0:04:380:04:43

he lands in a pillow case!

0:04:430:04:45

He's being looked after at

the kangaroo sanctuary

0:04:450:04:49

in Alice Springs in Australia

and what's even stranger,

0:04:490:04:51

he's called Bradley.

0:04:510:04:52

Oh, doesn't he look comfy?

0:04:520:04:57

Now we're raving about this party.

0:04:570:05:00

They're on a special plane

which is normally used

0:05:000:05:04

by astronauts to see how it feels

being weightless in space.

0:05:040:05:07

But instead, these guys

have a 90-minute party,

0:05:070:05:10

complete with flashing

lights and DJs.

0:05:100:05:13

Who needs dancing

when you can float?

0:05:130:05:17

And if you're afraid of heights,

well, look away now.

0:05:170:05:20

This is the longest

zip wire in the world.

0:05:200:05:25

It's a record-breaking 2.8

kilometres - that's longer

0:05:250:05:28

than 28 football pitches.

0:05:280:05:30

It's in the United Arab Emirates

in the Middle East and starts

0:05:300:05:33

on the mountains before plunging

down through the hills.

0:05:330:05:38

You go at over 90 mph.

0:05:380:05:41

That's even faster than you're

allowed to go on a motorway.

0:05:410:05:44

I think you'd have to be pretty

strange to wanted to go on it.

0:05:440:05:48

I'd be way too scared!

0:05:480:05:51

That's all from the Newsround team

for now - we're back with your last

0:05:510:05:55

hit of news just before 2.15pm.
