The Biggest Nuclear Icebreaker

Timelab.pr...

DVA winner Timelab.pro created this stunning drone video of two Russian nuclear-powered icebreakers powering through the ice-covered Barents Sea.  Fifty Years of Victory and the Yamal are the only two active Arctica-class icebreakers.  These double-hulled vessels are just under 150 meters (486 ft.) long and displace about 25k tons.  Their two OK900A nuclear reactors produce an incredible 340MW of power, enough "juice" to fully supply a medium-sized city. This video won the X-Factor category at the 6th Annual NYCDFF.

Latvia sits at a very northerly latitude, which makes for some very long winters.  At the same time, the long winter months in this Baltic republic make for some incredible scenery.  The Baltic Sea freezes, but only partially so, and the freezing temperatures yield giant chunks of ice which float about and collide with each other and the shore.  In this drone video by top contributor Jurgis Kreilis / Film Day, you'll get a nice aerial tour of this frozen winter wonderland including both its coastal and inland areas.

SNOW IN THE LAKE DISTRICT!
