Lake Vostok

Scientists prepare for the unique experiment getting to the relict Vostok Lake through 4-km-thick ice.

      Only 80 meters separate impatient researchers from waters of the subglacial lake. Existing well stopped at 3668 meters due to malfunction of the drilling equipment. New bores will arrive to the Antarctic this autumn.
