Giant metallic 'steed' traverses Iceland's threatened glacier

Instead of a slow slog on snowshoes, a giant bus sweeps passengers at up to 60 kilometres an hour across Iceland's second largest glacier, which scientists predict will likely be nearly gone by the end of the century.
The red glacier mega bus is 15 meters (50-foot) long and fitted with massive tires for traction across the powder snow of western Iceland's vast Langjokull ice cap.
