Cassandra Brooks, a Stanford University PhD student who is now blogging onboard a research cruise in Antarctica, recently posted an intriguing time-lapse video montage of its icebreaker, Nathaniel B. Palmer, making its way through the Ross Sea.

Watch out for the part where Brooks goes ‘Sometimes, icebergs threaten to barricade us, other days we easily dodge them’. It sounds like it could almost be a metaphor for life and its difficulties.
