One of the biggest icebergs ever is about to break off the Antarctic

independent, UK - An ice shelf the size of Bali is days away from breaking off into the Antarctic ocean, scientists have warned.

At 5,000 square kilometres – equivalent to the US state of Delaware - the iceberg will be one of the biggest ever recorded by scientists observing the frozen subcontinent.

Just 13 kilometres of ice now remains attached to the main area, leaving it hanging like a thread.
