Kathryn Hansen, a NASA science writer, took the picture on a flight of Ice Cliffs on the Antarctic Peninsula on November 12.

Hansen said in a blog post: "If the A-68 is still part of the ice shelf, the A-68 will be so vast, but if you look afar you can see a thin line between the icebergs, And where the ice shelves start in front. "

The European Space Agency said the iceberg is twice as large as Luxembourg, making it one of the largest ever. NASA compared it to the size of Delaware. This close-up is a good addition to the A-68's satellite image seen earlier.

NASA scientists are using polar ice through the Icebreaker aircraft. Because of the harsh weather conditions in the area, NASA scientists can only operate their research aircraft for a limited time. The current task is to start from late October.
