Photographer Benjamin Von Wong is known for his ambitious projects which often point to serious environmental issues we’re faced with. In his latest project named Strawpocalypse, his models “parted the sea” made of 168,000 used plastic straws. It took a lot of time and effort to build the installation. But it paid off: Ben took some fantastic images which send a message that we can do something to decrease pollution of the sea with plastic.
“We know more about the surface of Mars and Moon combined than we do of our own ocean floor.” Thanks to Ved Chirayath of NASA Ames Research Center, this might change in near future. He has developed a new camera tech that allows the scientists to explore the ocean floor from the air. This hardware and software technique is named fluid lensing, and it could enable NASA to look and map out all of the coastal ocean systems in the world.
Victoria Police have reported that a 22 year old Australian man has been pulled from the water at St Kilda Pier. Why was he in the water? Well, he was attempting to rescue his drone. He’d been flying the drone with a friend to shoot photos as part of a project when it suddenly fell into the water.
Attempts to recover the drone from the pier were futile. So he stripped down to his underwear, and jumped in. The average sea temperature right now is around 14°C, so needless to say, his efforts didn’t quite go as planned. The drone rescue quickly turned into his own rescue as the cold water took its toll, causing cramps.
