Longest Glacier — Lambert-Fisher, Antarctica

Basically a glacier is a slow moving mass of ice and what better place to find a slow moving mass of ice than the frozen wastelands in Antarctica.

The world's longest glacier is the Lambert-Fisher glacier at an icy 320 miles in length and a not-so-hot 25 miles in width.

The Lambert-Fisher glacier is a speed demon as far as slow moving masses of ice go, moving over a half mile each year.
