Filed under: InspirationDisneyYouTube

What's that in the air? Is it a bird? Is it a plane? IT'S A TRAPPE!

Jonathan Trappe might not have been trying to float to Paradise Falls with a young Wilderness Explorer, but he was attempting the lofty goal of being the first person to cross the Atlantic with the use of cluster balloons!

With over 300 helium balloons, Jonathan left Caribou, Maine attempting to make it across the pond, but unfortunately he had to make a landing in New Foundland instead, coming up short of his goal.

Well, regardless, it sounds like he had an adventure straight out of Up!

Ch-ch-check out his epic take off…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Massive Dolphin Die-Off Mystery Solved!!

Filed under: Sad SadHealthScience!Scary!Dolphins

This is so crazy, but dolphins have been dying at an alarming rate… and no one knew why.

From New York to North Carolina, 357 dolphins have died between July 1st and August 26th of just this year!

There are normally only about 36 deaths during that time!!

That's awful?? What's going no?!

Apparently, it's a virus! Scientists have just discovered the morbillivirus, similar to measles, is weakening dolphins' immune systems.

The outbreak cannot spread to humans, so we're safe, but dolphins are still dying and there's no way to immunize wild dolphins!

Oh no! We better figure out some way to help them! Poor dolphins…

Check out the video (above) to learn a little more about this scary situation.

Dutch Teen Sailor Sets Off To Cross Atlantic

When we were teenagers we spent most afternoons eating Oreos in front of the TV!

Laura Dekker, a Dutch 15-year-old, is setting off to cross the Atlantic Ocean in her yacht, which is another step in her goal to sail around the world one ocean at a time.

Dekker hopes to make the 2,532-mile trek from the Cape Verde Islands to the Caribbean Island of St. Maarten in three weeks.

We’re sort of scared for her!

Stay safe, bb! Don’t cut any corners!!
