And it’s an ice so thick that icebreakers have been forced to turn back.
Russian and Chinese Icebreakers, and the Russians are the worlds best at Icebreakers, when they give up on you. It’s over.
Interesting that the news coverage of this fiasco is all about the ship trapped in ice, not one story mentioned that this happened in Arctic Summer (!) or that the mission goal was to prove that the arctic ice is melting away (not so much).
The Arctic is a Climate Denier, who’d have thunk it?
