Posted by Calvin Dao on Friday, April 17, 2015

Sometimes it seems like everybody is shooting with GoPro cameras now. Whether they're used for filming vacation videos on the beach or sporty action shots, all types of footage from the small devices riddles the Internet. But here's a first that only U.S. astronaut Terry Virts has achieved: GoPro in space.

NASA released a video this week of footage shot with a GoPro from the International Space Station on two separate spacewalks by Virts earlier this year. The video shows Virts installing cables ...

Posted by Calvin Dao in Wildlife on Friday, March 27, 2015

In what seems to be this week's viral hit, one Terrace Bay, Ont. woman is taking 'cat person' to the next level.

"What's up, buddy?" says Beth-Ann Colebourne to a wild lynx she spotted hanging around a post office. "What are you doing? Come here!"

Mellway writes in the description, "The north has forever ...

Meet the caretaker behind a community rink

Posted by Fangliang Xu in Photography on Monday, March 9, 2015

At 11 p.m. it's finally time for Ewan Reid to go home, after spending two hours shovelling and flooding a community skating rink in Ottawa, Ontario. This is one of many nights Reid works under the moon - he has been a volunteer rink caretaker for five winters.

I spent an evening with Reid on his McNabb rink in downtown Ottawa; it was the longest, coldest night I've experienced since moving to Canada from Shanghai two years ago, but it was worth it. I asked Reid what kept him committed to the ...
