NASA explains photos of almost perfectly rectangular iceberg

This giant rectangular iceberg looks totally out of place in Antarctica
Once they split from an ice shelf, they are often geometric in shape.
The picture was snapped on October 16 by scientists working with Operation IceBridge - a NASA mission that monitors the ways polar regions are responding to climate change.
"The iceberg's sharp angles and flat surface indicate that it probably recently calved from the ice shelf".
The rectangular iceberg appeared to be freshly calved from Larsen C, which in July 2017 released the mammoth A-68 'ice island, ' a chunk of ice about the size of the state of Delaware.
Scientists are concerned about how ice at Earth's poles will fare with warming temperatures, and how melting ice will affect sea levels around the world, but Bartholomaus is hesitant to draw direct links to climate change.
It looks so flawless that it seems Photoshopped - but a odd perfectly rectangular iceberg near Antarctica is a natural phenomenon, NASA scientists say.
A NASA spokesman said: "It will yield an unprecedented three-dimensional view of Arctic and Antarctic ice sheets, ice shelves and sea ice". They are wide and flat and long, like sheet cake, Brunt said. Brunt added that only about 10 percent of the iceberg's mass is visible, the rest being underwater.
