It looks like B-15A is quickly making it's way out to sea. After breaking off pieces of the Drygalski Ice Tongue, it's headed north, and away from Ross Island. What this means is that it's allowing warm ocean currents to reach McMurdo Sound. Nothing confirmed, but talk in town says a really big wind could open up the sound and even jeopardize the ability to have a Ice Runway location for the 2005-2006 season. Also, open water is only 10 miles from McMurdo. That could be the reason the penguin was in town last week.
