“Ziggurat”

Actually, a ziggurat, to build on a raised area”) was a massive structure built in ancient . It had the form of a terraced step pyramid  of successively receding stories or levels. Ziggurats were built by the ancient  Sumerians.

By the way, I should add this, I am sure you all heard, Palmyra an ancient city (Unesco  World Heritage) has been destroyed again. The great ancient city resisted to the thousand years but can’t resist the evil of humans…

Anyway, what’s the main point about ziggurat in here,

I have just heard and being learning to this new knitting method, it is amazing.

Huge 25-mile crack in Antarctic ice-shelf forces scientists to halt climate change research

The team of scientists, monitoring climate change, work from a portable state-of-the-art facility, known as the Halley VI Research Station

Shocking drone footage shows the huge scale of the 25 mile-long crack in ice that forced a British Antarctic base to shut down

  • The Halley VI Research Station is home to the British Antarctic Survey
  • The research base is being relocated 14 miles across the Brunt Ice Shelf
  • If the research station is not relocated, it could be swallowed by the ice by 2020 
  • Once operation is finished, station will be abandoned for the winter

Yesterday, the Halley VI Research Station was forced to close its Antarctic research base amid rising fears it could fall into a huge ice chasm.

Shocking new drone footage has now been released that shows just how massive the growing crack in the ice is.

The worrying footage has forced the British research base to relocate 14 miles (22 km) across the Brunt Ice Shelf and close its doors for the winter.

The footage shows a 25 mile-long (40km) crack that appears to be a few feet deep. In some areas, the crack has split into two, leaving behind small islands of ice.

The British Antarctic survey said that changes to the ice presents ‘a complex glaciological picture’ that causes concern about the shelf on which the station is located in the coming months.

The survey says a new crack on the floating Brunt Ice Shelf in Antarctica will force them to remove people before the Antarctic winter, which runs from March to November, ends.

There’s no risk to the people currently at the station, but difficulties in evacuating people during the winter prompted scientists to shut the station as a precaution.

‘Halley VI Research Station sits on a floating ice shelf. It was designed specifically to move inland if required,’ said Director of Operations Captain Tim Stockings.

One of my dreams, Antarctica…

If my dream would be true, I would like to live in British Halley Research Station….

British scientists are stranded after their Antarctic base lost power in the depths of winter as temperatures plummeted to a record low of minus 55C.

There is no way of rescuing the 13 researchers from the Halley VI Research Station – which has been hit by a 19-hour blackout – for months until the hostile winter subsides.

The British Antarctic Survey admitted it was a ‘serious incident’ and has suspended all experiments as the workers heat up emergency accommodation which has not been used for months.
