Brad Webster was just showing a friend around the isolated town of Unalakleet, Alaska when they stumbled on a stark example of just how brutal nature can be — two dead moose, still locked in combat, frozen in ice.
For decades, tin foil fashionistas have attributed a number of sinister happenings to the atmospheric research program known as HAARP, including hurricanes, earthquakes and even the destruction of the Space Shuttle Columbia. After this week, however, it will be a lot harder to entertain those claims: On Saturday, the supposed weather-altering secret weapon is holding an open house.
Video: Here's a lovely view of a salmon run in Lake Iliamna, Alaska. Just being able to see the rivers filled with salmon from up above is incredible, it's just packed to the brim with fish. It's also pretty cool to be able to track all the different areas the salmon are in, from the mouth of the river to the gravel beds.
If humans want to limit global warming, we'll need to drastically reduce our carbon pollution. We might need to do so even faster than our models suggest, because as scientists are now discovering, there's an additional factor working against us: fire.
Taken by photographer John Dibbs for Lockheed Martin's Code One magazine, these two F-22 Raptors are flying against the snowy picturesque backdrop of Alaska and they look absolutely stunning. So stunning and pristine and impressive that the pictures almost look fake.
President Obama's trip to Alaska this week intended to shine a spotlight on climate change. But he's also there for a social media spree, including using a selfie stick. Presidents, they're just like us!
President Obama's headed to Alaska today, but it's not the typical politicized meet-and-greet. From talking to residents who are forced to flee their homes due to rising sea levels, to learning the political repercussions of melting polar ice, he's got one of the most science-focused itineraries ever embarked upon by an American president.
I'm a city person. I like buildings and bridges and streets and corners. I like angles and materials and signs and lights. But even I can let my jaw hang throughout this entire video about forests and mountains. The aerial video filmed by Earth Porn Films starts with the greenery of Alberta, Canada and transforms into the winter wonderland that is Alaska. It is truly stunning.
Last October, our friend Justin travelled to Alaska in search of Dall Sheep — North America's most elusive big game animal. He brought back an excellent feature story and now, there's video. Moments like this are what outdoorsmen live for.
St Patrick's Day is filled with drunkards decked in green. The Northern Lights are beautiful and stunning and light up the sky in a wonderful hue of green. Naturally, they're made for each other. Or if not, they should be. Ignore the noise today and just watch this Northern Lights timelapse shot from Alaska.
An impossibly long, single-lane tunnel is your only way into Whittier, and your only way out. Make it to the other end of the dimly lit tunnel, and you'll find all the ingredients of a city. Except instead of a sprawling, urban centre, this town has been scaled to fit almost entirely into one lonely Alaskan tower.
Taking it between my bare hands, the hot blood stinging wind-chilled fingers, I pull the bull's heart from its silent, massif of a body. Bigger than my head and with a heavy weight, the heart wrenches attention from the rest of the world as the tundra refocuses. Cutting a slit through the heart's wall to open it like a book, I let the coagulate fall to the ground. Setting the heart aside, we continue to butcher the moose, a true giant of the North.
Briefly: This turquoise gem is what summer looks like in southeastern Alaska. From an altitude twice that of commercial jets, NASA's arctic research aeroplane ER-2 — a civilian version of the Air Force's U2-S reconnaissance plane — captured this view of a summertime melt pond atop a glacier on July 16, 2014.
