Photo Friday: NASA IceBridge launches 2017 Antarctica campaigns

We’ve covered images from NASA’s Operation IceBridge on Photo Friday before. But as any good project is wont to do, they continue to release spectacular images on their main site and Twitter page. The project began its 9th year with the launch of two simultaneous campaigns. This is a first for the project, launching two flights from two continents (South America and Antarctica) at the same time, but the team hopes it will allow them to expand their coverage into East Antarctica while maintaining surveys near the Antarctic Peninsula.  

This Friday, enjoy some images of glaciers from a recent NASA IceBridge flight.
