Nasa: Largest Demolition Derby on the Planet

Nasa published some impressive satellite images of a giant iceberg the size of Long Island that is on a collision course with a floating glacier in Antarctica. The scientists say the 100-mile-long iceberg, dubbed B-15 A, is set to crash into the Drygalski Ice Tongue near the McMurdo Research Station on the coast of Antarctica by the end of this week.

"It's a clash of the titans, a radical and uncommon event," said Robert Bindshadler, a researcher at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, which has been tracking the iceberg's movement.

I have a friend that is at McMurdo station right now, and he has been keeping us updated on it. It has actually slowed down considerably since the earthquake.

This is what he wrote earlier this week
Quote:
We've been waiting for that collision for a while know, at one point B15A was moving at like 2km/day. For something that huge, that is a great deal of force. It has slowed down and based on the daily satellites we've had for the last few days, which have been hard to see due to weather, looks like it is just floating there now.

The sea ice condition here is messed up in general. The station might be running longer this season due to the freaky ice conditions. Long story short, icebreaker is broke, sea ice is expansive, and the channel to be cut is very long.
