Tell me more about a
trip to Antarctica!
in McMurdo Sound
The Finnish built Russian
operated icebreaker Krasin was hired by the US authorities during
the 2004-2005 season to "break-in" to McMurdo station
in the Ross Sea area of Antarctica. The giant ice-berg named
B15A caused a winter sea ice build up that didn't break out
as it normally would in the spring so making relief of the station
at McMurdo more difficult than normal.
