This huge crack has developed in the ice there and has caused some


British scientists who are based nearby, to move their research labs,


It goes on for miles. This huge cracks deep into the ice has been


captured by a droning on task. The crackers in an area called the


floating brunt ice shelf, just ten miles from the crack, British


scientists are based at a station. The station is made up of big blue


had is with a big red pod in the middle. They have made the decision


to move their base because they don't know what will happen to the


ice shelf in the next few months. Luckily, the pods are designed to


move, with the likes fitted onto big skis. Next few months are important


because the Antarctic winter will be starting and the area will be pitch


black months. It also means it would be difficult to evacuate people from


the area in the winter conditions. Temperatures get as low as -55


Celsius. We have taken a prudent decision but in light of this new


crack it will be best and safest to close the station in a controlled


way as to bring our team home, because there are safety is


paramount to us. The survey also say that cracks in ice shelves aren't


unusual, but this new crack is growing. They plan to go back to the


area in November to carry on their work when it is summertime again


there. Until then, they will monitor the crack.
