Russian Scientists Drilled a Well Down To the Subglacial Lake

Russian scientists in Antarctica drilled a well down to the subglacial lake.

      It took the Russian researchers three years to drill a well down to the subglacial Vostok Lake in Antarctica. This was told to TASS by the Minister of Natural Resources and Ecology Sergei Donskoi on Sunday, January 25. “After three years of intense work in extreme Antarctic conditions Russian polar explorers managed to complete the drilling of the well down to the subglacial Vostok Lake. The well depth along the length of the ice core amounts to 3769 meters 15 centimeters”- Donskoi said. According to the Minister, this achievement is “a global-scale event with a great scientific value and significance”.
