National Geographic Channels will premiere a 125th anniversary special, “A New Age of Exploration: National Geographic at 125,” on Friday, Jan.
On June 13, 2013, the 125th anniversary will be celebrated at a “National Geographic Evening of Exploration” gala, where the Society’s top medals and honors will be awarded to explorers and other recipients. Leading brand of the Swiss watch industry, Rolex, headquartered in Geneva, enjoys an unrivalled reputation for quality and expertise the world over. The National Geographic Society is one of the world’s largest nonprofit scientific and educational organizations.

This Earth Day, National Geographic teamed up with NASA and Catlin Seaview Survey to bring you a Google+ Hangout that explores the land, sea, and sky. Along with explorers from both NASA and National Geographic, they are with Cailtin Seaview Survey cinematographer and shark researcher Richard Fitzpatrick who joined them from Australia’s Great Barrier Reef… while underwater.
Through the use of an underwater tablet, they explored the Great Barrier Reef through the eyes of the Catlin Seaview Survey expedition.
This year National Geographic celebrates its 125th anniversary and a long legacy of exploration, conservation, and research. Since their very earliest expeditions, new technological developments have assisted them to go places and make discoveries not possible before, and to share them with the rest of the world in new and exciting ways. You’ll get an insider’s view into cutting-edge technology from a specialized fleet of detection aircraft to high-tech storm tracking equipment to deep-water robots–innovations that allow us not only to explore the Earth, but also to change it for the better.
The Google Earth mapping of the Great Barrier Reef is amazing no doubt and this special event planned to celebrate Earth Day is like an icing on the cake.

NatGeo has brought together a great cast that includes explorers from both NASA and National Geographic and Cailtin Seaview Survey cinematographer and shark researcher Richard Fitzpatrick who will be using an underwater tablet to join the chat. This morning yet another wonderful passionated Rolex announcement came up, published December 12th by pressroom of National Geographic.
The yearlong initiative has been made possible through a 125th anniversary partnership with Rolex.
For decades, Rolex has supported pioneers of exploration, from the tallest mountain to the deepest ocean trench, and we look forward to being there, wherever man dares to venture next,” said Arnaud Boetsch, communications & image manager of Rolex SA.
Its OYSTER watches, all certified as chronometers for their precision, are symbols of excellence, performance and prestige. Founded in 1888 to “increase and diffuse geographic knowledge,” the Society works to inspire people to care about the planet. This unframed canvas print come in many sizes, including large wall art that's sure to create an amazing effect in your home, office or wherever your walls need a great work of art.
Using specially designed technology, the team has been recording and revealing the world’s oceans and reefs like never before, in high-resolution, 360 degree panoramic vision. Every hour of every day, National Geographic explorers take to land, sea, and sky (each frontier represented by a colored band on National Geographic’s historic flag) trying to uncover, understand, or help care for the world around us. Now, this Earth Day, National Geographic is teaming up with NASA andCatlin Seaview Survey to bring you to the watery depths of the Great Barrier Reef, the soaring heights above the polar ice caps, and the vast red-soil plains of Oklahoma’s lightning zone. National Geographic’ special “Hangout” on Google+ also included one participant that will be joining the Hangout underwater live from the GBR.

The article itself, by Lise Funderburg, deals with the changing idea of race over the years, from the erroneous early 20th century notion that some races were genetically superior to others, to its more modern but equally inadequate identity as a social construct which seems to exist more for Census Bureau purposes than any real human or moral utility (not to mention all of the attendant violence, hatred, and injury that comes along with said inadequate social construct, which my passing mention does little justice to).
Most modern humans native to Africa have brown skin of some hue, so maybe our African human ancestors did too? As you can imagine, this great move history & heritage wise of Rolex has logically my full interest. The program profiles the new superheroes of exploration — amazing people who are forging new ground as they square off against the latest frontiers. Pioneer in the development of the wristwatch as early as 1905, the brand is at the origin of numerous major watchmaking innovations, such as the OYSTER, the first waterproof wristwatch, launched in 1926, and the PERPETUAL rotor self-winding mechanism introduced in 1931.

National Geographic reflects the world through its magazines, television programs, films, music and radio, books, DVDs, maps, exhibitions, live events, expeditions, interactive media and merchandise. This kind of game-changing documentation has allowed the world to see real-time changes in coral reefs to start planning for the future. I happen to be at my parents’ house right now, and they had the issue sitting on the coffee table.
The portraits, all of mixed-race Americans, serve to underscore the inadequacy of our culture’s racial labeling system for both the describer and the describee. People of European descent have paler skin, which means that somewhere along their migration out of Africa a series of genetic mutations led to having less pigment, at least for the specific lineage of humans who became Europeans. If she represents the future of America, then the future is going to be a gorgeous and mixed up place that our 20th century ideas about race simply won’t be equipped to describe. National Geographic Channels will dedicate more than 125 hours of programming to the theme of exploration throughout the year in its “Explorer Top 125” programming event.
National Geographic magazine, the Society’s official journal, is read by more than 60 million people each month.
Meanwhile, the article reminds us that eliminating the vocabulary of race doesn’t eliminate the sins of the past or present, nor does it stop us from subconsciously identifying race in less than a tenth of a second, an odd habit that a University of Colorado brain imaging study showed that we do, in fact, do.
A truly integrated manufacturing company, Rolex designs, develops and produces in-house all the essential components of its watches, from the casting of the gold alloys to the machining, crafting, assembly and finishing of the movement, case, dial and bracelet. The National Geographic Channel reaches 440 million households in 171 countries in 38 languages. Rolex is also actively involved in supporting the arts, sports, the spirit of enterprise, and the environment through a broad palette of sponsoring activities as well as philanthropic programmes.
