Icebreaker nearing ship stuck in Antarctic Ice

Friday, December 27, 2013 - 11:14pm

A Chinese icebreaker is inching closer to a ship stranded in thick, Antarctic ice.

The Russian ship has been stuck since Christmas Eve . The Australian based scientific team on board was recreating Douglas Mawson's voyage to Antarctica 100 years ago when it became trapped.

The ship isn't in danger of sinking, and there are ample supplies for the 74 scientists, tourists and crew members on board.

The expedition is expected to continue once the ship has been freed.
