NASA has found an almost perfect iceberg. It is perfectly rectangular in shape.

They confused a lot of people when they posted the image on social media.

Several people suggested the iceberg was man-made, while others believed it could have been created by aliens.

However, it turns out that some icebergs are just made like that.

There are two types of icebergs. Firstly, we get the type that everyone can envision in their head, they look like prisms or triangles at the surface and you know they have a crazy subsurface.
Secondly, you have what are called ‘tabular icebergs’. Tabular icebergs form long, flat and straight and break off at the end.

This new iceberg is more than 1.6km across. It’s too big to flip over, but it could certainly crack up and disintegrate at any moment.
