A huge, flat, iceberg with perfect right angles was spotted on Oct. 16, 2018, by NASA’s “Operation IceBridge,” floating among sea ice, just off the Larsen “C” ice shelf, on the Antarctic Peninsula (the South Pole).
According to NASA, ‘“Operation IceBridge’s’ mission is to record images of our planet’s polar regions, in order to better understand how ice has changed and shifted in recent years.”
Fox News reports that, “This mysterious iceberg’s unique geometric shape has sparked considerable debate on social media.”
According to NASA, however, there’s a simpler scientific reason why the iceberg appears to be a perfect rectangle.
Uh, excuse me, but it doesn’t just “APPEAR TO BE a perfect rectangle,” IT IS A PERFECT RECTANGLE!!!
“We get two types of icebergs: We get the type that everyone can envision in their head that sank the Titanic, and they look like prisms or triangles at the surface and you know they have a crazy subsurface,” Kelly Brunt, an ice scientist with NASA, told Live Science. “And then you have what are called ‘tabular icebergs.'”
“Tabular icebergs are wide and flat, and long, like a sheet cake,” she said. “They split from the edges of ice shelves, large blocks of ice, connected to land but floating in the water surrounding iced-over places like Antarctica.”
“What makes this one a bit unusual is that it looks almost like a square,” Brunt said, adding that it’s probably not very old since wind and water have yet to soften its sharp edges.”
Uh, ya, “a bit unusual” to say the least. “A bit unusual” is definitely an understatement.
“Although it’s hard to tell the size of the iceberg in this photo,” Brunt said, “it’s likely more than a mile across.”
Now I ain’t no “scientist,” but I am smart enough to realize that this “tabular iceberg” did not just happen naturally, all on its own.
You can say what you want, and come up with all of the scientific explanations you want, but I’m sorry, no one can convince me otherwise.
As with all icebergs, of course, the part visible above the surface is just the top 10 percent of its mass. The rest is hidden underwater, and I wonder what that looks like!?
