The world's biggest iceberg: 19-mile crack in the ice breaking away from Antarctica
An astonishing photograph taken from outer-space illustrates how an iceberg the size of New York is close to breaking off from Antarctica.

A 19-mile crack in Pine Island Glacier's ice is clearly visible, leading some scientists to speculate that the world's biggest berg could soon be on the move.

The picture, taken by NASA's Terra spacecraft in November 2011 but only released today, shows how the crack is quickly growing. Just a month before it was only 18 miles long

Pine Island Glacier


Major ice stream that drains the West Antarctic Ice Sheet.

Extending for 19 miles (30 kilometers), the crack was 260 feet (80 meters) wide and 195 feet (60 meters) deep. Eventually, the crack will extend all the way across the glacier, and calve a giant iceberg that will cover about 350 square miles (900 square kilometers).

This image from the covers an area of 27 by 32 miles (44 by 52 kilometers), and is located near 74.9 degrees south latitude, 101.1 degrees west longitude.

LOL here we go for the 2012 movie is there gonna be a tit jumping to get the ice cores?

however, this does cause some concern for the thermohaline conveyor belt as a large amount of cold fresh water could effect the overall sea temp...however this takes a couple of years to cause the blocking event stated in the movie day after tommorow.....

hollywood...you maybe on to something LMFAO!!!
