@tomorrow_unlocked 's posts

@bigdaddivladi, Dr. Vladimir Burkanov, has researched the wildlife in the Kurils for nearly 30 years. He kind of hitchhiked on #fromkurilswithlove  and it was the best thing that could have happened. We are learning from him every minute. Here he shares wisdom about technology and learning. “If you want to know something, learn new things, there’s no way but to use new technology.” You can find the full interview on our site.

You think your connection is bad 🤔? Trust us, it can be worse... Fog is an awful condition. Not only is it slightly depressing and dark and grey - it also is a real issue when you are on a ship, in the middle of nowhere and have a (anyway slow) satellite connection to communicate with the world. In a nutshell: the more fog, the slower the connection. We started the journey with communications in Whatsapp, but as we were also exchanging video files, we noticed that they compress video quite a lot. We tried things then. An internal box delivered too low upload speeds, email was obviously not an option - so we ended up with Telegram. It delivered us solid speed and good quality. With the caveat that the transfer of files might simply abort after five hours and you would have to start all over again. "Are you kidding me, that's 7 Megabytes, that will take hours". Most of us have heard that sentence for the last time years ago, but in expedition terms, this is a normal conversation between the boat and those that stayed back. So, today I requested four images in high resolution from the crew - and it needed full commitment from Povel, the expedition leader, to actually get these through. Check the times in this conversation. #fromkurilswithlove #patienceisavirtue #persistencepaysoff #sleepissooverrated #patience #persistence

Ushishir greeted us with perfectly calm weather. An island out of paradise. Check Tomorrow Unlocked (link in bio)  for updates in the expedition diary. #fromkurilswithlove #sunrise

The significance of this rock formation and Ushishir Island as a whole, in the context of the #fromkurilswithlove expedition is major. In fact, without the complex chain of micro-viral trigger points it created, among a group of people that didn’t at the time know each other; I’m not sure it would have happened. For @e_kaspersky and @ollyru999 Ushishir became their favorite island (“The most beautiful and photogenic island of them all”) during a previous adventure in the Kurils back in 2014. For myself (@povel) and @renan_ozturk, during a brief commercial project for the Euro-Arabian North Pole expedition which #kaspersky supported in 2018, it was a photo of the slanted rock formation (see photo) covered in a veil of fog, that became part of our conversation in Svalbard, hours before UK explorer Felicity Ashton and her team headed for the North Pole. I remember quite clearly the words from Renan: “there must be potential for some first ascents there”. In a parallel reality somewhere between those two events, after stumbling across photos in Eugene’s blogpost about his encounter with Ushishir, @chrisburkard started his own internal journey and began researching the Kurils for a potential expedition. After Renan returned back from the NP gig, we all started looking into the possibility of going there, and after I had realized that there was a possibility of latching on a different expedition, by seizing the opportunity of getting on an “empty vessel, aka Afina”, going North to South from Petropavlovsk to Yuzhno, to pick up a group of passengers, taking them back up the same way - a serious game of domino effect, hard work, ups and downs, a bit of luck and support from @kasperskylab, the visual storytelling team slowly started building. @taylorfreesolo was an obvious#choice to combine her enviro science knowledge and production skills, soon followed by @_ryanhill_ and @tedhesser to help with the massive photo, video and drone task. @rishisugla and @jtkerby as marine and terra science communicators. @alejandroarango13 @donreverendo on BTS duties. The rest is as they say, history. We plan to stay at Ushishir for a couple of days to reflect and recoup. More to come!

Our first footage of the surviving Steller Sea Lions at Raikoke Island - sadly local scientist @vnbcam believes all pups were wiped out by the volcano on 22 June. #fromkurilswithlove with  @renan_ozturk @chrisburkard in the zodiac.

We are now at Raikoke where the recent eruption happened. We are all waiting to see what happened to the seal population there. The fear is that they might have been all wiped out by the eruption. All ashes. An island that was lush and green is now a big rock covered with ash. No seal rookeries. No passages through the rocks while there were several before. New land now covers those areas. Thousands of birds flying around the volcano, seemingly lost. Not knowing what to do as they lost their homes. It's all gone. Weird feeling of death on the shores yet a clear and present reminder that earth is very much alive inside. The caldera is still steaming.We are navigating around Raikoke and searching for life.#fromkurilswithlove #volvanoes #wildlife@chrisburkard @renan_ozturk @taylorfreesolo @tedhesser @e_kaspersky @povel @alejandroarango13 @jtkerby @rishisugla @_ryanhill_ @ollyru999

Everyone brought expensive gear to #fromkurilswithlove and nobody wants to loose it - but the conditions are difficult. So, you'd better be prepared, like @jtkerby while filming seals. Sound on! #welovetheearth #ourplanet #seals #filmmaking #excitement

We went out on a Zodiac (in simpler words: a smaller excursion boat) so that @chrisburkard, @_ryanhill_  and @tedhesser could do some drone work and @renan_ozturk, @taylorfreesolo and @rishisugla would film underwater shots of what we believed might be a few humpback whales. In the end, we were surrounded by these amazing creatures - they were around us, below us, everywhere. It is hard to describe how it felt - maybe only really understandable if you have been there. "360 degrees of them surfacing and breathing these amazing spouts of water high into the air", Taylor tried to describe. " Their sounds of breath were like the ocean itself breathing." While, due to bandwidth limitations, we can for now only share videos shot on our phones, it is incredible, which impressive technology the film makers brought on board. Several drones out at the same time, underwater cameras - expect incredible films! As Rishi put it: "Growing up as a major nature documentary nerd I'm starting to realize the major shift that must have happened pre and post introduction of drone technology!"#welovetheearth #ourplanet #fromkurilswithlove #excitement #techaddict

We've seen a lot of green today. The island of Paramushir offers an incredible spectacle: mineral waters from the island's rivers mix with the sea and create all shades of blue and green. So, we got the drones out to shoot the scenery, which ended in breathtaking photography (check @chrisburkard posts). While the cameras were up in the air, our boat did some circles, even intensifying the stunning effect.There was more green, in faces, as a few of the crew fell seasick. Unavoidable, most likely, and those of us who are not (yet) affected really feel with them.The weather meanwhile stays calm, yet overcast. No rain, no sun. We are still hoping for the clouds to make some way in the next days. While not filming we kept ourselves busy with fishing - resulting in flounder for dinner.We are now going south, on our way to Onekotan, where we plan to stay for a few days. We hope to do some hiking, see the lagoon and hopefully climb to the top of the volcano in the middle of the caldera. That could get us off the boat in tents for a few nights - but the weather will decide that.#fromkurilswithlove @taylorfreesolo @chrisburkard @renan_ozturk @e_kaspersky @povel @alejandroarango13 @jtkerby @_ryanhill_ @tedhesser @rishisugla @donreverendo
