That's Right My Friend's,,,,, Isn't the Title Cool,,, or should I say,,,, Cold and Dark!
OH, before I forget, I used our All Powerful Search Function and did see this article posted as of yet.
Ok, I think this is very Cool, This could mean there's Life on the moon of Jupiter, Europa.
Anyway, I'll bow out and let you all read.
Antarctica, the coldest place on Earth, teems with microscopic life. Tiny organisms dwell on the ice and live inside glaciers, and now,
researchers confirm, a rich microbial ecosystem persists underneath the thick ice sheet, where no sunlight has been felt for millions of years.
Nearly 4,000 species of microbes inhabit Lake Whillans, which lies beneath 2,625 feet (800 meters) of ice in West Antarctica, researchers report today
(Aug. 20) in the journal Nature. These are the first organisms ever retrieved from a subglacial Antarctic lake.
"We found not just that things are alive, but that there's an active ecosystem," said lead study author Brent Christner, a microbiologist at
Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. "If you had to think up what would be the coolest scenario for an ecosystem in Antarctica, you couldn't
make this up."
You can just see a Scientist running around with his hands in the air Screaming, It's Alive,,, It's Alive!!!!
Sorry, couldn't help myself!
