Default Square Iceberg Spotted by NASA Perplexes Millions

Square Iceberg Spotted by NASA Perplexes Millions
Full story with photo:

There might not be a lot of right angles that naturally exist in nature,
but that doesn't mean they can't exist. This iceberg photographed by
NASA recently is proof enough of that.

While precise right angles and rectangles aren't easy to spot in nature,
this iceberg captured the attention of millions for its precision. The
pictures were taken by researchers as part of the NASA Ice and
Cryosphere Research program.

The iceberg can be found in the Weddell Sea off the Larsen C ice shelf
in the Antartic. According to NASA's estimates, it probably broke off
from the Larsen C not too long ago, hence the perfect lines and little
erosion.

While this pristine-looking iceberg might seem rare to the general
public, NASA researchers aren't too surprised. They even noted that
sheet-like icebergs are pretty common.
