This image taken by passenger Andrew Peacock of www.footloosefotography.com on December 30, 2013 shows the ship MV Akademik Shokalskiy still stuck in the ice off East Antarctica, as it waits to be rescued. An Australian icebreaker was on December 30 battling against bad weather to reach a ship carrying a scientific expedition stranded off Antarctica, leaving open the possibility of a helicopter evacuation, authorities said. The ship is carrying scientists and tourists who are following the Antarctic path of explorer Douglas Mawson a century ago, details of which at www.spiritofmawson.com, and have been carrying out the same scientific experiments his team conducted during the 1911-1914 Australian Antarctic Expedition -- the first large-scale Australian-led scientific expedition to the frozen continent.
