Milne Ice Shelf lost an area larger than the size of Manhattan and two resulting islands are now dangerously floating in the ocean, scientists say.
About 1 million square kilometres less of the ocean is covered with ice than in the past seven years, according to new findings, and it's largely caused by the Arctic's record-breaking heatwave.

Organizers of the MOSAiC expedition are determining the best way to bring a relief crew to the ship without spreading the virus, which could leave roughly 100 scientists and crew on board for an extra six weeks.
The carbon-zero facility is meant to demonstrate autonomous renewable power and serve as a base for advanced research when initial construction is finished in 2022.
