In less than 24 hours, a large chunk of  sea ice described as “larger than the state of Rhode Island” broke off from the Ronne-Filchner Ice Shelf and splintered into tiny segments. The photo-like images were taken by Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua and Terra satellites between  January 12 and January 13, 2010. Credit: NASA
