Posted on 02/05/2012 7:19:42 AM PST by PJ-Comix
A TEAM of Russian scientists has gone quiet as they race against winter to uncover an ancient Antarctic lake.
The group from Russia's Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute (AARI) have been drilling for weeks in an effort to reach isolated Lake Vostok, a vast, dark body of water hidden 4000m below the surface of the continent. Lake Vostok has not been exposed to air in more than 20 million years.
The team's last contact with colleagues in the outside world was six days ago, and scientists from around the globe are unsure of the fate of the mission - and the scientists themselves - as Antarctica's deadly winter draws near.

Who goes there?
Has anybody seen the 2011 Remake of the 1982 Remake of “The Thing?” If so, what did you think because right now I feel like renting it.
“Everything links this story...”
I meant... EVERYONE links this story...
(bad fingers, bad fingers)
No matter what theory is correct, the outcome is the same: POPSICLES
Any ususual seismic activity in that region?
I saw it in the theaters, opening day.
It’s a bit remake, a bit prequel. If you’re a big fan of the 1982 film, definitely see it.
It’s good, but not great. It takes you somewhere the 1982 film didn’t. The lead is no McCready, but she is ok.
The strange thing here is the silence on this topic from Russian news sources.
There’s no problem. It’s just that AT&T has cut off their cellphones for non-payment of their bill.I hate it when that happens...
A moment of silence will not help anything.
“Also significant was the sheer size of the anomaly: 65 by 46 square miles.”
It’s the Mothership.
Weather satation back on line....
Weather station back on line....
“I hope the Russians have a lot of flamethrowers and high explosives.”
And underwear, lots of underwear.
Hmmm...back or just a clever ruse?
Up from the depths of the earth...The Slime People.
Oh wait, they’ve been here for awhile as evidenced by the democrat party.
OMG! They've discovered the battery pack for the Earth's gravitational generator! We're DOOMED!
One major concern is the Russians have filled the hole they’re drilling with more than 14,000 gallons of kerosene and Freon to prevent it from freezing shut. The Russians have engineered their system so that when they break through into the lake, water pressure from below is supposed to push the drilling fluids up the hole, rather than letting them pour into the lake and contaminate it.
(and that is from 2/3/2011 A YEAR AGO. They were 100 feet away from the lake)
Oooo....-52F and 9mph wind. Not sure planes can fly in that.
