Rectangular icebergs in Antarctica

Operation IceBridge is National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) longest-running aerial survey of polar ice to assess changes in the ice height of glaciers.

On October 10, 2018, NASA began a 5-week-long IceBridge deployment. The flight originated from Punta Arenas, Chile, and is scheduled to conclude on Nov. 18.

As recounted on NASA.gov, on Oct. 16, 2018, the IceBridge aerial survey flew over the northern Antarctic Peninsula. IceBridge senior support scientist Jeremy Harbeck spotted two sharp-angled rectangular icebergs floating among sea ice just off of the Larsen C ice shelf.

The rectangular icebergs appeared to be freshly carved from Larsen C, which in July 2017 released the massive A68 iceberg, a chunk of ice about the size of the state of Delaware.

Harbeck said:

“I thought it was pretty interesting; I often see icebergs with relatively straight edges, but I’ve not really seen one before with two corners at such right angles like this one had. I was actually more interested in capturing the A68 iceberg that we were about to fly over, but I thought this rectangular iceberg was visually interesting and fairly photogenic, so on a lark, I just took a couple photos.”

Here’s a closer-up image of the larger rectangular iceberg, showing the iceberg’s sharp angles and precision-cut edges.

How do natural icebergs get to be rectangular in shape, with sharp angles?

There’s no way folks. Dr. E is right again!

I was surprised they released the photo, as it’s bound to raise suspicions due to its extreme singular appearance.

Someone has been up there doing some carving, maybe to speed up some surface oil exploration?

Yes, nature makes no right angles in anything.

Let’s ask Al Gore if he knows about it. Hey Al, have you been down under? Hahahaaaaa!!!

I hate to be the odd man out here, but rectangular ice formations are possible, although rare: I’ve seen them on frozen ponds—although I never saw more than one right-angled corner on one.
According to the FDA, ice is a food. Therefore, it follows, that Antarctica is the world’s largest contiguous food source!

The only way you would have something like this is if it were formed in a mold. Otherwise, someone would have to cut those edges. That’s pretty unlikely unless they have something I don’t know about.

Directed Energy Weapon. Space LASER. See recent fires in Northern California and Greece. The ice is not receding, it is advancing, but since our beloved overlords need our money, they are simulating global warming to remove dollars from your pockets by breaking up the ice with LASERs and selling the idea that it is melting.

Personally, I have no idea.
I consider it very abnormal for ‘mother nature’ to produce such a phenomenon.
If it is in fact ‘man-made’ it is of little consequence.
If it is ‘alien’ made….what are we to do about it??

Interesting?? Yes
Thought provoking? Yes
Such things pique my interest while proving my ignorance of what may be.
Speculation is free but all too often…futile.

After having researched Antarctica, the simple fact is that it ALWAYS leads to the Flat Earth Biblical model. For the RECORD, I don’t believe in the Flat Earth concept. HOWEVER, the Flat Earthers have made excellent points, especially: NASA (the acronym itself is the Hebrew word for “deception” or liar”, whichever, I’m not sure, is in fact a liar. Just looking at their badges, the ISS, and other stuff involving them, specifically the moon “landings” are fake. Thus, the flat earth movement appears to be some kind of misinfo net and stop sign to ward off research into Antarctica, because… Read more »

Does it matter what shape it is in? Japan will come along and tow it so it can bottle it as “rectangular iceberg water.” And, people will buy it as a health food for $20 or more a 32 oz (or less….) bottle. Done Deal: cure cancer and ADHD and baldness and all the rest. 🙂 ROFLMAO.
