Thanks to climate change, melting ice in the Arctic has opened new shipping routes that go across the North Pole. One new shortcut is Russia’s Northern Sea Route, a 3,000-mile east-west passage between Europe and Asia.
It’s getting colder now so the ice is refreezing, shutting down the passage for the year. But it’s been a big year: 71 ships made the voyage—compare that to 2010, when only four did.
