The Larson Antarctic Split



There is a very big crack developing in the Antarctic and when it breaks away it will create a very large iceberg and potentially change the pace in which the glaciers in the Antarctic move.  This video has some amazing aerial footage of what the crack.  

British Antarctic Survey released this new aerial footage showing the widening rift that threatens to tear the ice shelf asunder at any moment. The footage makes the immensity of the crack clear, as the yawning chasm stretches off into the horizon.

The crack now stretches more than 100 miles in length. And at 1,500 feet across, you could lay the Empire State Building across the rift with a few feet to spare.
