scientists expeditioners passengers tourists rescued from Russian ship Akademic Shokalskiy could have been on the way home today, instead they are on their rescuer’s vessel, finishing the work that their rescue interrupted at Casey Base.
Russian ship ‘Akademik Shokalskiy’ stuck in Antarctic Ice starts moving again, per my forecast – both ships have broken free of ice!
It seems my forecast worked out well. From RT news:
A Russian-built ship stranded in the Antarctic ice has started moving away from the ice fields after a change of wind cleared its path. A Chinese icebreaker, which was caught herself on the way to rescue the vessel, has already reached clear waters.
Luckily, as the weather changed the danger threatening the trapped vessels decreased.
Now I am betting the Russian crew are laughing at their former guest’s plight and relieved to be heading home themselves. After all, it was the expeditioner’s tardiness in returning to the ship that is believed to have caused the drama in the first place.
