Happy Monday morning,
I'm Ayshah with your top stories.
We check out the latest
from the Winter Olympics
in the Arctic, and...
We take a look at one of the biggest
parties in the world
First, we're off to the Winter
Olympics in South Korea,
where strong winds caused mayhem
at the Phoenix Snow
Park in Pyeongchang.
The women's slopestyle
final was badly affected
by the wind conditions.
Britain's Aimee Fuller came 17th
and crashed on her second run.
She was OK though!
The gold medal went to defending
champion Jamie Anderson
of the United States,
who pulled out these
incredible skills to win.
It seems that nowhere in the world
is safe from plastic pollution.
Researchers are concerned
after finding that a huge amount
of plastic waste is now
reaching the Arctic.
From a distance these beautiful
shores on the Arctic coastline
of Norway look pristine, unspoiled.
Take a closer look and it's
a very different picture.
The plastic polluting our oceans has
now made it to the so far
relatively untouched Arctic.
Just last year I think
we brought in 30 tonnes.
Household, it is food
One of the biggest causes of plastic
pollution in the area is fishing.
Bits of rope and netting can be
found everywhere and it's having
an impact on the local wildlife.
The rubbish comes from all
over Europe, and even
as far away as America.
I mean, you can throw things
into the ocean in Florida and think
I am throwing it away and then it
might appear on our shores.
He has made it his mission to pick
up as much of the litter as he can
around these Norwegian fjords.
What to say?
it is so obvious what doing
here is like the tip of the iceberg.
This is what is readily available.
I mean, I pick up this little piece
of litter and we won't see it again.
Now we've seen people walking
on the moon but will it ever be
possible for that to happen on Mars?
It sounds like an idea
for a new sci-fi movie doesn't it?
But actually a research team have
been spending time in the Oman
desert doing experiments that
could one day make that a reality.
Sending a man mission to Mars has
Sending a man mission to Mars has
been a space explores ambition for
years. These researchers are hoping
to make it a reality. There are in
the Oman desert in the middle east
doing experiments that could one day
help humans to survive on the red
Why oh man? We need a place
that looks as much as Mars as
possible. We found it here. It is a
beautiful place but is a sign
difficultly useful place and
operationally useful place.
it is a distant dream, it felt
closer on Tuesday when the company
successfully launched the world's
most powerful rocket. While getting
there is one challenge, astronauts
will also need to be able to survive
on Mars. That is why these
experiments are so crucial.
will go to Mars and we will stay on
Mars, we will have to use the
resources we find on Mars because we
cannot bring everything from Earth.
That is called in situ resource
utilisation. We use the things we
find there to sustain life,
sustained missions and then log run
may be other things.
For now this
vast desert is the perfect spot to
carry out tests like growing
vegetables, and trying out a bulky
spacesuits. Who knows one day
similar scenes could be taking place
People call it the biggest
party in the world -
and judging by these pictures,
it really is.
Carnival is under way
in the city of Rio in Brazil.
Every year more than a million
people from all over the world take
to the city's streets
for the massive festival
which includes parties,
dancing and amazing costumes.
It's not just for fun though,
there are competitions with winners
announced at the end
of the celebrations later this week.
I'm back in half an hour
with loads more.
See you then.
