ANTARCTICA – Anyone up for a cold one on the rocks?

Don’t get too excited, there are no drinks here, but something ice cold none the less.

Scientists say the massive 255 square mile iceberg, twice the size of Atlanta, is moving into the ocean off Antarctica.

It’s called Iceberg B31-A, and could be a third of a mile thick.

NASA discovered a crack in the Pine Island Glacier in 2011, which grew and led to a giant piece of ice finally breaking off in November 2013.

Scientists think an iceberg this size could float around for a year or longer, and could threaten to freeze shipping in the southern Indian Ocean during the winter.

Not sure where the iceberg will end up, but you don’t wanna get in the way of this Titanic size iceberg!
