• Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that April 29 was the royal wedding in London. Find out how Kate Middleton and Prince Williams tried to make it a low-carbon affair. Plus, you can check out all our wedding coverage here. 

• This week, we're taking you to Juneau, Alaska. Nature is right outside the front door in this capital city, where terrestrial and marine pursuits keep visitors busy.

• This should be an interesting show: Sebastian Copeland goes "Into the Cold" — literally — to bring attention to climate change.
