Snap! Crackle! POP! Goes the Iceberg!

The iceberg B-15A, which has been blocking sea ice from escaping out to sea for four years, has collided with the ice sheet near the Drygalski Ice Tongue. This might mean that the sea ice could float out to sea clearing the path for shipping and the 3,000 Adele Penguins and their feeding grounds.
