Scientists say a massive iceberg with an area almost twice the size of Atlanta is moving into the ocean off Antarctica. It could threaten shipping during the Antarctic winter. In a report from NASA's Earth Observatory, scientists say the ice island covers 255 square miles and could be almost a third-of-a-mile thick. NASA says the iceberg broke away from Antarctica's Pine Island glacier last November. The crack that produced it was first spotted in 2011.
