A vast iceberg is splitting from Antarctica, thanks to a giant crack in a glacier that’s “really important” to sea level rise.

 

The crevasse stretches 19 miles (30 kilometers) long and up to 260 feet (80 meters) wide, as shown in a picture taken by NASA’s Terra satellite in October and featured this week as a NASA Image of the Day.
