Skip to comments.World War II Rumor About an Ancient Lake Is Revived (Russians Say Hitler Remains/Clones)

As my colleague David M. Herszenhorn reports, scientists are poised to take some highly anticipated samples from a deep subglacial lake in Antarctica, saying on Wednesday that they had succeeded in boring through more than two miles of ice.
The state-financed broadcaster Russia Today posted video of the researchers at the frigid Antarctic outpost, including clips of them snowmobiling around the endless expanse of ice and snow and watching supply planes land.
What evolutionary secrets Lake Vostok named after the Russian research station above it may hold after being sealed under ice for millions of years has tantalized scientists who hope to find evidence of previously unknown forms of life.
Probing the mysterious depths of earth has also fascinated casual observers, some of whom gravitated toward more outlandish theories about what may be discovered in the ancient lake, including alien life forms or Hitlers remains.
That last theory, based on sketchy rumors of a Nazi base on the frozen continent, received an unlikely boost this week from Russias state-run news service, Ria Novosti, which said that the scientific mission had revived an old theory saying that German Nazis may have built a secret base at Lake Vostok as early as the 1930s.
The state news report then delved deeper into the realm of Nazi conspiracy theory, observing without any evidence that it was also rumored that later the submarine U-977 delivered the remains of Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun to Antarctica for DNA cloning purposes.
Bloggers pointed to other rumors of a Nazi base in a vast northern area of Antarctica known as Queen Mauds Land (or Dronning Maud Land in Norwegian), as the Washington Post blogger Elizabeth Flock observed. Even so, the Moscow Times and others picked up the reported rumors without providing any new evidence or

The Thing.........why do I keep thinking about that movie?????......
This theory is were the movie The Boys From Brazil came from?
By the way they aren't in Antartica anymore, they escaped to the moon. Not to worry though, even moon NAZIs are nothing a President Palin can't handle:
Surf Nazis Must Die
I read all about it on a blog so it must be true.
I know this is a dumb question, but is this really a lake or some unfrozen water in a bubble under the ice.
President Palin kickin’ Nazi arse. Hell, I’d pay to see that.
You’ll get your chance, it is a real movie.
When I was in high school there was a woman in my small town (Hannibal, Mo) who seemed to believe that Hitler was living in a secret camp just outside of the city limits and that he was preparing to regain control. You could call her up, tell her you were working on a paper for class, and she would go on and on. I feel bad about it now as it seems clear that she had some serious mental problem. On the other hand she could have just been having some fun at our expense.
I was thinking of “They saved Hitler’s Brain.” I would not even rate it as a “B” movie. It is worth watching, if nothing else for the train wreck effect.
“..in a vast northern area of Antarctica...”
I guess that could be pretty much anywhere!
