Zoom in on sea ice

Time for some adventure! We're going to take an exciting journey through the sea ice. We'll start by flying 20,000 m up in the air. As you zoom in closer and closer, we'll come crashing down to the surface of the ice. We won't stop there, though; you'll even get to go inside the ice. Usually, only scientists with high-tech equipment get to see the ice this closely. To get started, read the caption and then press "Zoom In" to start diving down into the ice.

This picture is 10,000 m (or 10 km) across. This is the way sea ice would look if you were in an airplane looking down from an altitude of 20,000 m. It shows Arctic sea ice in July when it is melting. There is a ship in the picture. Can you find it? I don't think so.
