Who owns the Arctic Circle?

ArcticThumb.jpgThe United States and other countries are fighting over who can claim the Arctic Circle, including oil and fishing rights. Billions may be at stake.

Researchers at Durham University in the UK developed a map last year that shows the major claims and disputes.

You can see a simplified version in Sunday's Sun-Sentinel, as well as a map of potential oil fields.

The United Nations Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf will meet August 10, 2009 to decide who owns the those chilly northern reaches, including the North Pole.

And Santa Clause may need a Russian passport.

Man on the moon: Apollo 11 celebrates 40 years

Apollo11AnniversaryNI.jpg

Happy 40th anniversary, Apollo 11! July 20 marks the 40th year since Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin captured the world's imagination when they stepped foot on the lunar surface. How exciting must it have been to see those first steps on television in 1969!

To commemorate the landmark event, I decided to do a News Illustrated focusing on the entire mission. My goal was to map out every step (no pun intended) from launch to splashdown. I was even fortunate to find timestamps to help tell the chronology, and used as many historical photos as possible to further tell the story. This is just one of those subjects that demand it tell its own story.

What I wish I could have included was a timeline of the whole Apollo program, but I quickly ran out of space. So to give it the justice it deserves, here's a copy of the 30th anniversary page we did in 1999 by my former colleague Dan Niblock.

And for more information, visit NASA's Apollo 11 anniversary page.

Ida the fossil, 47 million years old

She is the oldest primate fossil ever found. When Ida died she weighed a bit more than a pound and was only 9 months old. This little primate has a lot of scientists jumping. They have already made a documentary and book written on her. The images of the fossil are breathtaking. Take a look at graphics and video.
