    Australian icebreaker “Aurora Australia” could end in Argentina

    The Australian-designed and built icebreaker ferried about 14,000 expeditionary across the Southern Ocean, often amid severe storms.

    Australian researchers' ambition to keep the Aurora Australis icebreaker under the Aussie flag has been dealt a blow, with reports that the vessel has been sold to Argentina. For three decades the 'Orange Roughy' transported thousands of scientists, crew, and supplies for Australia's Antarctic mission.
