The latest from the Winter Olympics
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 nowhere in the world
is safe from plastic pollution.
Researchers are worried
after finding 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 tipped 30 tonnes.
Brought in household litter,
food wrapping, bottles.
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 end up here on our shores.
Bo Eide has made it his mission
to pick up as much of the litter
as he can around these
What to say?
It is so obvious what we're 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 it's gone,
it won't go out to sea again.
OK, let's have a look
at the latest sport.
There were big wins for two sides
battling against relegation
from the Premier League.
Matt Richie's second half strike
was enough to see Newcastle beat
Manchester United 1-0.
The win has moved them
up to 13th place.
While Huddersfield are out
of the bottom three thanks
to their 4-1 victory over
Goals from Roberto Firmino and this
cool finish from Mo Salah saw
Liverpool beat Southampton 2-0
and move back up to third
in the Premier League table.
Southampton drop down to 18th place.
Over in rugby, Greig Laidlaw scored
22 points to help Scotland
pick up their first win
of their Six Nations campaign.
They came from behind to beat
France at Murrayfield.
Elsewhere, Ireland were 21-8
winners over Italy in
the Women's Six Nations competition.
Next up, we've seen people walking
on the moon but will it ever be
possible for that to happen on Mars?
Check out this research team in
the Oman desert who think it will.
Sending a manned mission
to Mars has been a space
explorers 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 planet.
We need a place that looks as much
as Mars as possible.
We found it here in Oman.
It is a beautiful place
but is a scientifically useful place
and operationally useful place.
Although it is still a distant
dream, it felt a little bit closer
on Tuesday when Elon Musk's company
SpaceI 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.
Once we 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
We use the things we find there,
first of all to sustain life there,
sustain missions there and then
in the longer run may
be for other things.
For now this vast desert
is the perfect spot to carry out
tests like growing vegetables,
and trying out the bulky spacesuits.
Who knows one day similar scenes
could be taking place on Mars.
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.
Last up, with Valentine's Day
round the corner, some animals have
been getting in on the action.
Yes, these loved-up pups walked down
the aisle in Lima in Peru
in a special doggy wedding ceremony.
Puppy love or just barking mad?
I'll let you decide.
