Incredible facts about the Halley VI research station

A huge crack in the ice near an important scientific research station is forcing it to move to a new location.

The Halley VI is a British Antarctic Survey research station which is based at the Brunt Ice Shelf, in Antarctica.

It's home to a team of scientists, engineers and a colony of penguins!

However, two large cracks have appeared in the ice, which could potentially cut off the research centre if it breaks away from the main island.
