Russians reach ice-buried lake in Antarctica

by mdr on Feb. 08th, 2012

A team of Russian researchers have successfully drilled through miles of glacial ice and finally reached the surface of a long-buried lake. Scientists estimate the gigantic body of water, named Lake Vostok, has been buried under ice for more than 20 million years, and think the lake could contain forms of microbial life that existed before the Ice Age.

These geniuses obviously need to get a Netflix subscription for their research station. How many versions of this movie will it take before people pay attention?
