Arctic glacier almost collapses on small boat (video)

Some incredible footage from the BBC of a huge side of a glacier collapsing dangerously close to some arctic explorers.


The video is pretty cool, but I also tried to piece together a few shots from the video to give you a better sense of the scene – the shot below worked otu pretty well. This before the collapse. Right before.

This is right after the collapse is about to finish – note the same peak at the top center of both photos, but the big right chunk is now gone.glacier-collapsing
