Ninety trained NASA rubber ducks may be lost under Greenland ice. The ducks were hurled into a drainage hole on the Greenland ice in September as part of an experiment to see how melt waters find their way to the base of the ice sheet. According to BBC News: "It was hoped the ducks would flow along subglacial channels and eventually pop out into the sea. They may still, but nothing has been seen of them so far." We are still holding out hope that these duckies will resurface. To read the full story go here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/7780200.stm
