Forget Cape Canaveral, it's lift-off for this remote Scottish crofter community as UK builds first spaceport

In the famous classic Ealing Comedy "Whisky Galore," a remote community of crofters - that's Scots for farmers - had their lives changed by a ship which ran aground with a huge cargo of malt whisky. For the crofters of the coastal village of Melness in Sutherland on the north coast of Scotland, one might say it is "Rockets Galore" after the UK government announced plans to build the first spaceport in the UK on land nearby at Moihne - otherwise known as Melness Croft. The land is jointly owned by crofters from Melness, potentially earning them millions from the lucrative and sought-after orbit for satellites.

In the video, a bear looks inside the window of a home while the filmer can be heard saying, “Oh my goodness.” The bear runs off only to return shortly to raid a bird feeder while giving a cat inside the home a big scare. "Look at those claws," the filmer says in the video. “I was working at my computer in my living room recliner when I noticed a black bear standing at my window, trying to dump the contents of our hummingbird feeder into his mouth,” the filmer said. “He then stuck around in our yard trying to find any other tasty morsels from our other bird feeders,” the filmer continued. “I started to video him and he came right up to our door, which I promptly locked!” “He then went back towards the hummingbird feeder and that's when our cat jumped up in the window for a glimpse,” the filmer said. “When the bear stood up again, our cat hissed and swatted at him. Then he smartly ran away.” “This was such an exciting, somewhat scary and rare occurrence,” the filmer said. “To catch a bear midday so close up and personal — I’m so glad I caught it on video!”

Aerial footage shows massive corrosive seawater plumes as lava hits Hawaii seas

Stunning aerial footage from Hawaii shows huge plumes of corrosive seawater rising hundreds of feet into the air as a result of lava flowing into the sea. Footage filmed on Wednesday (July 18) from an open-door helicopter shows the effects lava when it hits the sea, just two days after a lava bomb struck a tourist boat, injuring 23 passengers. Tourists flock to see the molten lava in Hawaii, with tour operators organising boat trips to the area where lava meets the sea.

Filmer Mila Zinkova said: “I filmed this video from a helicopter (with) no doors, so I did breath in some laze, I also was able to smell it.”
