Well this is fascinating. An iceberg of enormous proportions has broken free of Antarctica and is drifting through the south seas towards the island of South Georgia.
There’s not much down there in terms of human life but this island is home to colonies of wildlife. Not least Penguins. Should the iceberg grind up against the island’s shores it could have a devastating impact on the local ecosystem.
Check this cool video out (posted by the European Space Agency) for more information.
But how big is the iceberg?
The iceberg is huge. Reportedly twice the size of Luxembourg, or, three times the size of London. It’s also approximately 200 metres deep below the ocean’s surface.
That’s one heck of a slice of ice.
