Well, there is hope for the 5 July-August and the 5 after August voters!  Somebody will have guessed right.  GIF of the crack area:  June 16, 2020 and July 27, 2020.  One image was shifted to remove most ice tongue movement.  The cracks on the left and right have all widened during this 41 day period.  There is a hint of extension, too.  (But I "see" things that might not be there!)  Images from Sentinelhub Playground - dates are in upper left corner.  [needs a click to run]
Arctic ice is healthy for children and other living things.
