You're live with Newsround,

Ayshah here this Monday.

0:00:050:00:07

Coming up.

0:00:070:00:09

The latest from the Winter Olympics

0:00:090:00:15

We take a look at one of the biggest

parties in the world.

0:00:150:00:23

First, we're off to the Winter

Olympics in South Korea, where

0:00:300:00:32

strong winds caused mayhem at the

Phoenix Snow Park in Pyeongchang.

0:00:320:00:36

The women's slopestyle

final was badly affected

0:00:360:00:38

by the wind conditions.

0:00:380:00:40

Britain's Aimee Fuller came 17th

and crashed on her second run.

0:00:400:00:44

She was OK though!

0:00:440:00:45

The gold medal went to defending

champion Jamie Anderson

0:00:450:00:48

of the United States,

who pulled out these

0:00:480:00:50

incredible skills to win.

0:00:500:00:57

It seems nowhere in the world

is safe from plastic pollution.

0:00:570:01:00

Researchers are worried

after finding a huge amount

0:01:000:01:03

of plastic waste is now

reaching the Arctic.

0:01:030:01:05

Here's Ricky.

0:01:050:01:08

From a distance these beautiful

shores on the Arctic coastline

0:01:080:01:12

of Norway look pristine, unspoiled.

0:01:120:01:16

Take a closer look and it's

a very different picture.

0:01:160:01:20

The plastic polluting our oceans has

now made it to the so far

0:01:200:01:24

relatively untouched Arctic.

0:01:240:01:28

Just last year I think

we tipped 30 tonnes.

0:01:280:01:33

Brought in household litter,

food wrapping, bottles.

0:01:330:01:38

One of the biggest causes of plastic

pollution in the area is fishing.

0:01:380:01:43

Bits of rope and netting can be

found everywhere and it's having

0:01:430:01:46

an impact on the local wildlife.

0:01:460:01:51

The rubbish comes from all

over Europe, and even

0:01:510:01:53

as far away as America.

0:01:530:01:56

I mean, you can throw things

into the ocean in Florida and think

0:01:560:01:59

I am throwing it away and then it

might end up here on our shores.

0:01:590:02:04

Bo Eide has made it his mission

to pick up as much of the litter

0:02:040:02:08

as he can around these

Norwegian fjords.

0:02:080:02:14

What to say?

0:02:140:02:18

It is so obvious what we're doing

here is like the tip of the iceberg.

0:02:180:02:22

This is what is readily available.

0:02:220:02:27

I mean, I pick up this little piece

of litter and it's gone,

0:02:270:02:30

it won't go out to sea again.

0:02:300:02:32

It helps.

0:02:320:02:35

OK, let's have a look

at the latest sport.

0:02:360:02:39

There were big wins for two sides

battling against relegation

0:02:390:02:42

from the Premier League.

0:02:420:02:45

Matt Richie's second half strike

was enough to see Newcastle beat

0:02:450:02:48

Manchester United 1-0.

0:02:480:02:49

The win has moved them

up to 13th place.

0:02:490:02:52

While Huddersfield are out

of the bottom three thanks

0:02:520:02:55

to their 4-1 victory over

Bournemouth.

0:02:550:02:59

Goals from Roberto Firmino and this

cool finish from Mo Salah saw

0:02:590:03:02

Liverpool beat Southampton 2-0

and move back up to third

0:03:020:03:05

in the Premier League table.

0:03:050:03:07

Southampton drop down to 18th place.

0:03:070:03:11

Over in rugby, Greig Laidlaw scored

22 points to help Scotland

0:03:110:03:15

pick up their first win

of their Six Nations campaign.

0:03:150:03:18

They came from behind to beat

France at Murrayfield.

0:03:180:03:20

Elsewhere, Ireland were 21-8

winners over Italy in

0:03:200:03:24

the Women's Six Nations competition.

0:03:240:03:29

Next up, we've seen people walking

on the moon but will it ever be

0:03:290:03:33

possible for that to happen on Mars?

0:03:330:03:35

Check out this research team in

the Oman desert who think it will.

0:03:350:03:40

Sending a manned mission

to Mars has been a space

0:03:400:03:42

explorers ambition for years.

0:03:420:03:45

These researchers are hoping

to make it a reality.

0:03:450:03:49

There are in the Oman desert

in the Middle east doing experiments

0:03:490:03:52

that could one day help humans

to survive on the Red planet.

0:03:520:03:56

Why Oman?

0:03:560:03:58

We need a place that looks as much

as Mars as possible.

0:03:580:04:04

We found it here in Oman.

0:04:040:04:06

It is a beautiful place

but is a scientifically useful place

0:04:060:04:11

and operationally useful place.

0:04:110:04:13

Although it is still a distant

dream, it felt a little bit closer

0:04:130:04:16

on Tuesday when Elon Musk's company

SpaceI successfully launched

0:04:160:04:20

the world's most powerful rocket.

0:04:200:04:23

While getting there is one

challenge, astronauts will also need

0:04:230:04:26

to be able to survive on Mars.

0:04:260:04:29

That is why these

experiments are so crucial.

0:04:290:04:33

Once we will go to Mars

and we will stay on Mars,

0:04:330:04:36

we will have to use the resources

we find on Mars because we cannot

0:04:360:04:39

bring everything from Earth.

0:04:390:04:41

That is called in situ

resource utilisation.

0:04:410:04:45

We use the things we find there,

first of all to sustain life there,

0:04:450:04:53

sustain missions there and then

in the longer run may

0:04:530:04:55

be for other things.

0:04:550:04:56

For now this vast desert

is the perfect spot to carry out

0:04:560:04:59

tests like growing vegetables,

and trying out the bulky spacesuits.

0:04:590:05:02

Who knows one day similar scenes

could be taking place on Mars.

0:05:020:05:09

People call it the biggest

party in the world

0:05:090:05:11

and judging by these pictures,

it really is.

0:05:110:05:13

Carnival is under way

in the city of Rio in Brazil.

0:05:130:05:16

Every year more than a million

people from all over the world take

0:05:160:05:19

to the city's streets

for the massive festival

0:05:190:05:22

which includes parties,

dancing and amazing costumes.

0:05:220:05:30

Last up, with Valentine's Day

round the corner, some animals have

0:05:300:05:33

been getting in on the action.

0:05:330:05:34

Yes, these loved-up pups walked down

the aisle in Lima in Peru

0:05:340:05:38

in a special doggy wedding ceremony.

0:05:380:05:42

Puppy love or just barking mad?

0:05:420:05:44

I'll let you decide.

What's your favourite

pancake topping?

0:05:500:05:52

My fave sugar and lemon

is in second place!

0:05:520:05:54

Chocolate spread's winning!

0:05:540:05:57

We're back at 4.20pm.
