Finally! The team of Russian researchers and engineers working in Antarctica have succeeded in taking a clean sample of water from Lake Vostok, a liquid water lake sealed beneath two miles of ice sheets at the bottom of the world. After one year, maybe, we can know what secrets this enigmatic subglacial lake holds in its deeps... This achievement into Lake Vostok is a hope or a threat? Is Lake Vostok the Pandora's box?

Credit: NSF (Phys.org)—Researchers with Russia's Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute have announced that they have successfully retrieved a clean ice core sample from Lake Vostok in Antarctica. The sample, taken from a bore hole drilled over two miles through the ice to the lake underneath, is the result of years of effort. Researchers hope to find evidence in the ice of life on Earth as it existed as far back as 20 million years ago.

Haha.. You're funny.. Your computer won't allow.. You're the boss not compy.. I went to the link anyway, and none of my active protection systems noticed anything wrong..

One piece of the Article that was interesting was that They won't Look at the sample until spring, when the boats get there...

More waiting it seems..

It will be nice if they find samples of rare distinct species that we have never heard of before,or some kind of lost civilization or a unique prehistoric race sealed under the ice for ages....Well they are most likely focused on finding resources anyways.

Some of the water was even served to Vladimir Putin
Of course it was


Inside it was a vertical channel filled with white bubble-rich ice."

No "native life" discovered thus far, even at 2.3 miles down. Still intriguing though and I hope something fascinating is revealed.

Thank you for the news, but it says REPORTED ATTACK PAGE for me also.
Would rather just hear your thoughts on what you've read than risk getting something on my system.
Did your system tell you it's an attack page as well before posting it on here?
Just saying.

Dang I have been waiting for an update on this seems like forever lol

With this latest extraction, the Russians insist they've retrieved a pure sample, but they won't know for sure until they get it back to their lab and study it – that won't happen though till it grows warm enough in Antarctica for a ship to arrive to carry the sample home in the spring.


guess were gonna have to wait alot longer. Why even tell us lol

snf

"It's from the stories of H. P. Lovecraft, in particular his "The Call of Cthulhu" available in the Dunwich Horror and other stories, but originally published in Weird Tales in the thirties. It roughly means Cthulhu lives. Also check out the website for Chaosium which does a Cthulhu Mythos role playing game.

You where being serious right. Bedlam ?

Found this statment in the comments section relating to the failed British drilling,

"Conservatives in England share their opposition to science and reason with their republican counterparts in the USA."

British Conservatives are the Darwinian if im correct in thinking ?

What about the US republicans way offf thinking ?

Anytime you start drilling near Rl'yeh, I start worrying about Cthulhu.

Or the Andromeda Strain. Either would work.

I think that this is an amazing story, although it will likely take many years to get most of the results (the ones revealed of course).

One thing I find weird is that they go WAY out of their way to dig down to this lake, and they didn't bring a field lab with them to analyse what they find.


An to open a breach to a lake or area that have been sealed for this long, who knows what could be down there and perhaps be released into the wild. Ok I know that Antartica isn't the most friendly environment but still. Didn't I read somewhere that many years ago, A petrified forest had been located under the ice in antartica? I could be wrong but I beleive I am right. Anyway, if its so, that means there once was life down there, and maybe still is
Here is one link

I think I watch too much tv!


Love this story nonetheless! S+F OP
