The trawler's captain Yuan Tsai Chen said the teenager had not eaten during his 11-day ordeal and the fishermen survived by catching sharks and fish. They were taken to hospital after arriving in Majuro and pronounced healthy, with one person suffering mild dehydration. Epic tales of survival are not uncommon in the northern Pacific, where tiny islands are separated by vast expanses of ocean. In January 2014, Salvadoran fisherman Jose Alvarenga washed up in the Marshalls, more than 13 months after he set off from Mexico's west coast with a companion, who died during the voyage. — AFP

I thought as this short discussion on low emission vehicles has become, I thought of Proust, who said, in the real voyage of discovery is for those not seeking new landscapes by having new allies. And continue to make more progress and the plan I will release this spring will set out exactly what that will look like.

In 2012, the British Film Institute ran a special season of classic sci-fi films from the Cold War era, entitled Kosmos: A Soviet Space Odyssey . More recently, a number of these films have appeared to watch online, legally and for free, which means that everyone can finally see these films as they were originally intended. As well as The Heavens Call, there's Planeta Bur - another film harshly re-edited under Corman's aegis. Released in America under the titles Voyage To The Prehistoric Planet and Voyage To The Planet Of The Prehistoric Women, their new sequences were overseen by Curtis Harrington and Peter Bogdanovich, respectively - further proof that even great writers and directors have to start somewhere. Full of shiny, metallic rockets and curvaceous space suits, these movies from behind the Iron Curtain may hail from a distant era, but they're steeped in a romanticism that is quietly infectious.

By Jospeh P. Farrell Ok folks, things just became even more bizarre regarding the Antarctica Strange Visitors Sweepstakes. May we have the envelope please... ? ... And the next visitor to Antarctica is... ... ........... The Russian Baltic Fleet! (Applause): Ships of Russian Baltic Fleet to make voyage to Antarctica this year ...uhm... er... really? I mean... really!? Now, as I recall, the last time the Russians sent their Baltic Fleet on this kind of half-way-round-the-world junket was in 1905 during the Russo-Japanese war, whereupon Japanese Admiral Togo promptly sank it in the Tsushima straits. Of course, when it comes to the modern Baltic Fleet, the TASS article reassures us that this is all perfectly normal and just part of the Baltic Fleet's usual schedule of voyages and drills and showing the flag: Ships of Russia’s Baltic Fleet, one of the major regional divisions of the Navy, will make several long-distance voyages this year, including a voyage to Antarctica, the official spokesman for the Fleet, Roman Martov told TASS.

We were just three days into our voyage across the Atlantic and things were already going wrong. Nothing could have prepared us for the violence of the winds and the unforgiving waves.

Launching voyage to International Space Station, Falcon 9 rocket takes off from launchpad that was home to some of Nasa’s best-known missions SpaceX successfully launched a Falcon 9 rocket on Sunday on a resupply mission to the International Space Station (ISS) that marks a new era of private spaceflight at one of the Nasa’s most storied bases. A Falcon 9 rocket took off at about 9.40am eastern from the Kennedy Space Center, off the coast of central Florida, from a launchpad that has seen off some of Nasa’s most famous missions but has gone unused since the agency retired its space shuttle fleet in 2011.

A planned SpaceX launch Saturday was scrubbed 13 seconds before it was to lift off. The new window for the mission, which will send cargo and hundreds of science experiments to the International Space Station, will open at 9:38am EST on Sunday.

That was the site of the rocked launch that sent the first US astronauts to the moon. It was also the site of the last...

Two South African rowers pushed off from the coast of Cape Town earlier in February and began what they hope will be a record-breaking journey to Rio de Janeiro. If they succeed, they will be the first to row across the southern Atlantic. Their goal in undertaking such a voyage: to raise awareness about climate change. The entire distance for rowers Braam Malherbe and Wayne Robertson is 6,400 kilometers as the crow flies, but they plan to row much farther to take advantage of currents and prevailing winds. Their route takes them north along the African coast before turning west, paddling past the island of St. Helena in the mid-Atlantic, and then south to Rio, says Malherbe. Their boat, at barely seven meters long, includes a watertight bubble at the bow, where the two oarsmen can rest or take shelter in a storm. However, they will spend most of their time in the rowing seats on the narrow deck that lies just two feet above the waterline.

Outlander hasn't graced our screens since July 2016, but it will be a few more months before Claire and Jamie Fraser are back for more time-traveling shenanigans, swashbuckling swordplay and knee-weakening romance. Starz has announced that Season 3 of Outlander will premiere in September 2017 with 13 new episodes, and it can't come soon enough. The new installments are based on Voyager , the third book in Diana Gabaldon's sprawling series of novels. The news comes as the production prepares to move from its home base in Scotland to Cape Town, South Africa, to shoot pivotal sea voyage scenes on the former sets of the Starz original series Black Sails. Watch stars Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan say goodbye to Scotland (for now) in the video below. Read more... More about Starz , Sam Heughan , Caitriona Balfe , Outlander , and Entertainment
