A 2,200-square-mile hunk of ice has separated from the Larsen C ice shelf. The new iceberg is one of the largest ever recorded. Scientists who have been observing the growing crack in the Larsen C ice shelf for months announced Wednesday that the trillion-ton iceberg had finally broken away at some point in the last two days. Toward the end, the calving happened faster than expected. The crack suddenly extended 11 miles (17 kilometers) within one week in May. The Larsen C ice shelf has now been reduced in sized by a record 10 percent.
