In Antarctica, a giant iceberg splits off

According to scientists who are monitoring the ice shelf of Larsen, in the next few days an iceberg of giant dimensions, an area of ​​5000 square kilometers, will break from it.

It will be the largest iceberg that has broken away from the glacier and it will really change the landscape of the Antarctic Peninsula.

Scientists from the University of Swansea said that at the moment the crack in the glacier reaches a length of more than 200 kilometers, the iceberg is kept on the glacier due to a small non-breakaway section with a length of 13 kilometers.
