Iceberg twice as big as New York is about to break off the Antarctic Blunt Ice Shelf, according to NASA.
The cracking of the Antarctic Blunt Ice Shelf is ready to release an iceberg with an area of about 2x Separation can lead to an uncertain future for scientific research and human presence on the shelf, "NASA said in a tweet

 NASA said in a statement that cracks appeared in the ice shelf, which were first observed in October 2016. It is unclear how the ice shelf will be unloaded after breaking of the iceberg, according to NASA, may become the biggest one to break from the ice shelf since the observations began in 1915. It is possible that the ice shelf becomes unstable after the interruption.
Joe McGregor, a NASA space flight scientist, said in a statement that the Future Future "on the ice shelf" probably depends on where McDonald's ice breaks are merging, another area on the ice shelf.
"If they merge upward (to the south) of McDonald's glacier, then the ice shelf may be destabilized, McGregor r added.
