Theres going to be a massive discovery thats earth changing here.
something seems to be delicate and important enough to wait for. Must be very important. 8 Yrs? What was the event that took place that caused an 8 yr wait?
As for the 50 times higher oxygen levels reminds me of the film The Abbys when theyre breathing oxygenated water.The cube? Wasnt there a tale of a cube that was of massive importance and could create life or was a key? I cant wait to see whats discovered, what ever it is im sure this will be mentioned straight away in media.
The Last 50 Meters before finally penetrate into the lake! The Event!
The world’s deepest ice crack over Lake Vostok in the Antarctic Region has reached the 3,700 metre-mark. Russian specialists are hopeful that they will be able to “unseal” the relict lake, which is covered under the 4 km thick ice before the end of this season. They will have to cover about 50 metres to achieve their goal. This water eco-system has remained isolated from the Earth atmosphere for millions of years. Deep drilling for the purpose of conducting a paleoclimatic research has been underway near the Vostok Station since the 70s of the last century, when nobody had any idea that such a lake did exist. The great geographic discovery of the last century, as scientists say, at first, was the brave hypothesis of the Russian glaciologist Zotikov, who initially assumed and then confirmed, with the help of his calculations, that there was a freshwater sea under the Sixth Continent’s ice cover since the thawing of the Antarctic ice continues non-stop due to ice thickness. Later his calculations were confirmed by the seismic research, by pilots’ observations, and also by satellite images. The polar researches have received the data providing information about the lake’s size and form, about the thickness of its ice cover, about the underwater relief, and about precipitation.
