The YouTuber examined the object from different angles and even showed heat signals coming from the object. In mid-October 2011, NASA scientists working in Antarctica discovered a massive crack across the Pine Island Glacier, a major ice stream that drains the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. NASA’s scientists are yet to figure out why the ice shelf is melting at such alarming rates. There's a reason why the world's Government has made Antarctica off limits and only certain people can go to certain areas for Scientific research. A geothermal heat source may help explain why West Antarctica's ice sheet is so unstable. New radar systems that had been trialled in Antarctica and Greenland were used to find the new reservoirs on Mars.

He later pointed at another strange phenomena in the near vicinity, pointing out another object that appears to be “floating” in the shadow cast by a wall of ice. The colossal slab of ice anchored to the Antarctic Peninsula undergoes seasonal periods of melt. NASA has reexamined an iconic Hubble Space Telescope image of a distant galaxy, at the centre of which lurks a supermassive black hole. Dr Banwell said: “What’s worrying is if George VI looks like this, other ice shelves on the peninsula probably have plenty of meltwater too. It actually looks intelligently designed.".
