Last month, designer and filmmaker Alex Cornell went to Antarctica on an expedition. He’s already a seasoned traveler and photographer, so he’s used to seeing awesome things during his trips. But even a man who’s used to seeing so much beauty got stunned with what he saw while cruising the frigid waters.
Resembling a big-ass Kryptonite in the middle of the ocean is a flipped iceberg, its polished crystal blue surface gleaming in the sunlight.
Seeing an iceberg is one thing, but seeing a flipped one is definitely more major since it’s a very rare occurrence. Most of the icebergs we see in pictures are snowy white but what Alex saw has a sparking azure color that makes it look like a giant galactic artifact. Experts say that the iceberg must be extremely ancient and its age could be anything from tens to thousands of years.
This ancient ice beast is a product of centuries of layered sediment and minerals.
Icebergs float because salt water is a lot denser compared to fresh water.
When an iceberg melts, the distribution of its weight changes, which can cause it to flip over. This is a rare occurrence though.

Icebergs can come in other shades aside from the usual pristine white.

They Heard Desperate Cries For Help. When Rescuers Arrived, What They Found is HEART-MELTING!
Great souls with beautiful hearts…
I have a soft spot for dogs, especially stray ones. I can’t stand to see them hungry, homeless, and hopeless. I give special kudos to people who make effort to help these dogs by giving them food, shelter, or getting them out of trouble. This is why it really warmed my heart when I saw this video of a poor, mangy dog being rescued by the good people from Animal Aid Unlimited in India. Really, people who work for animal welfare are some of the best people on the planet!
The terrified dog was already stuck for hours between the iron bars of the gate. The poor thing was covered in mange and he was really struggling from that helpless position. There was poop all over the front of the gate. One of the people in the area heeded his cries for help and called the rescuers at Animal Aid. Watch as they carefully extracted the dog from the gate and carried him safely to the rescue vehicle.
Watch the video:
The people at Animal Aid took good care of him. The dog was neutered, vaccinated, and treated for his severe case of mange....
A Teen Was Killed In A Car Accident. What a Cop Did Will Restore Your Faith In HUMANITY.
There is Good People in this world. Thank you!
With so many bad things happening around the world right now, sometimes we forget about the little good things around us, leaving us feeling unsafe, with our faith shaken especially in humanity.
Despite how some people become so faithless these days, it's humbling to know that there are still a few of them doing little acts of kindness, making a big difference and touching the lives of other people just like this tragic story with a touching ending.
One fateful New Year's Day, 17-year-old Patrick Sullivan was killed in a car accident. The town of Rockland, MA was devastated for the teenager's death who is so much loved by his family and many friends....
Fearless Man Climbs a Mountain Without Any Rope and Safety Equipment. UNBELIEVABLE!
That one time I remember my first ever rock climbing experience was for our tour package requirement in college which wasn't easy at all. The experience was by far the most extreme thing I have done--enduring a two-hour hike before reaching the destination, a few cuts and bruises, the danger of falling off the cliffs and whatnot. What made it worthy though were the beautiful rock formations in the cave, the breathtaking view and the certificate that came with it.
Speaking of which, this man deserves all the credit for having such an amazing, crazy and to top it all, a dangerous talent and hobby. Also featured on the show The National Geographic Channel, our guy here is no other than Alex Honnold, a rock climber who is best known for his free soloing on big walls. He probably got one of the extreme talents ever--being able to climb mountains without any safety harness. Yes, it may seem unreal but this man only uses his bare hands to reach great heights in only a matter of hours.
Alex has broken a number of speed records, most notably the only known solo climb which is no wonder at all seeing how he does it, with so much grace and unbelievable speed. He is also one of the current record holders for The Nose with a climb time of 2:23:51. This man is definitely on top of his game, defying death and extreme dangers doing what he loves most -- climbing....
