There has been an important development in the big crack cutting across the Larsen C Ice Shelf in Antarctica.
The fissure, which threatens to spawn one of the biggest bergs ever seen, has dramatically changed direction.
“The rift has propagated a further 16km, with a significant apparent right turn towards the end, moving the tip 13km from the ice edge,” said Swansea University’s Prof Adrian Luckman.
