But really thanks for this animation, star for you!
Hello Herr Genius
Now that animation shows that...
Starting from a depth pf 3,500m and higher, ice moves at a speed of 3 meters a year on the surface
And since they started the current Hole 5G in 1993 that means the surface has moved 54 meters
So how did they keep that hole open with such lateral movement?

The water was in a glass container and appeared yellowish in color. It carried a note that read, "Lake Vostok, more than million years old, depth 3,769.3 meters (12,365 feet), 5.12.11, Antarctic."
The Russian team had not been heard from for more than a week before the breakthrough was announced, raising fears for its safety. Temperatures were dropping below minus 40 degrees Celsius (minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit), and the clock was ticking before the onset of the Antarctic winter, when the temperature would get twice as cold.
