Cat Haven Island

This is a little featurette about Tashirojima, an island that has only 44 elderly people – and 800 cats. (Whilst I’m in the middle of trying to move house, this content is as good as it gets…)

If I Die on Mars

This is a genuinely fascinating video from the Guardian. “Three volunteers are on the shortlist to be among four people on the Mars One programme, the first manned space flight to Mars – a one-way trip that’s effectively a suicide mission. A physics student in the UK, a young doctor from Mozambique and an Iraqi-American woman, all happy to sacrifice their futures for a place in history. Why do they want to leave Earth, and who are they leaving behind? As the list of potential Mars explorers is whittled down further on 16 February, meet those competing to be the first to land on the Red Planet.

As much as we’re making a mess of Earth, I do quite like it. So I doubt I could ever have the will to do this trip to Mars. But it’s a great video to see who might.
