Antarctica glacier juste brokee off

An iceberg that's twice the size of Washington, D.C., just broke off of the Pine Island glacier in Antarctica, scientists reported this week.

"The Pine Island glacier recently spawned an iceberg over (115 square miles) that very quickly shattered into pieces," the European Space Agency (ESA) said in a statement.

The Pine Island glacier "is one of the fastest-retreating glaciers in Antarctica," according to NASA. Along with the nearby Thwaites glacier, the two glaciers contain "enough vulnerable ice to raise global sea level by 1.2 meters (4 feet)," NASA said.
