Right you are. Here is a link I found about thermal vents NEAR Antarctica.
I expect this kind of thing near the warmth of the vents, but up so high in the cold water. It seemed crazy to me.
I'll see what I can find regarding the temperature of the water in the drill hole.

Water temperature averages a comparatively balmy 33oF. Salt water temperature will drop to about 280F before it freezes.[1]post by txMEGAlithic[/url]
 

According to this site, the water isn't as cold as I would have guessed. Around 30 degrees is cold, don't get me wrong. This is talking about salt water.....Is the water under the ice sheets fresh water or salt? I assumed when they say 'Lake' under the ice they are referring to fresh water.

A few interesting bits of info on this site.

What's next you ask? Let's see, we have shrimp(small creature) in south, I would imagine we find giants in the Arctic north. My 2.2222 cents. Xenongod

Nice find OP snf
. Now consider lake Vostok also in the near region and what may be there. Noticed its been very a quiet subject since they almost were into it.

Yeah they did get quiet about all the Lake Vostok stuff. I think this is why.



Despite the success, a bitterness lingers among Russian scientists that they were forced to suspend drilling for years over international criticism of their environmental standards. To answer concerns that drilling fluid could pollute the pristine lake, the Russian team engineered new technology.


.....or is this the reason 'they' are giving us. Could be more to it I guess
Heres the site link

Question.......How do I make the box above say : Offsite content? can any one point me in the right direction
The content of that box isn't a quoted post. Is a quote from that website.

Makes me wonder what's lurking under the ice in the oceans of moons like Europa.

Life finds a way.

Yes, absolutely. Glad to see somebody else reference that episode. That is one of my faves.

Cool video. The one thing I noticed after watching the shrimp is why is the ice patterned like that? What are those black sections in the ice and why are they so uniformed and consistent all the way down? Doesn't really look like sediment which is what I thought at first. Hmmm?


I think the "black sections" could be Fata Morgana, which is a fancy way of saying Mirage.
