NASA scientists BAFFLED by perfectly rectangular MILE-WIDE iceberg
23 October 2018, 10:55 | Justin Tyler
The folks at NASA captured an incredible image of a near-perfect rectangular iceberg floating off the Antarctic Peninsula.
We all have an idea of what an iceberg looks like, and usually we imagine a chunky mountainous formation or an irregular slab with a seal lounging on top.
The US space agency's explanation that the odd-looking iceberg's sharp angles and flat surface was an indication that it had recently broken off from a larger iceberg didn't seem to cut it online.
The discovery was made as part of Operation IceBridge, the largest ever aerial survey of the planet's ice around Greenland and in Antartica.
Kelly Brunt, an ice scientist with NASA and the University of Maryland, said such icebergs are fairly common.
"The best thing I can say is that when a "trillion tonne" iceberg runs into an ice-covered rocky island (Bawden Ice Rise) the crystalline glacier ice will fracture along planes of weakness, much like a more typical mineral crystal might be cleaved".
Brunt said the iceberg could be unstable and break if someone were to walk on it.
