Subglacial Lake Ellsworth (British scientists & engineers)
In December 2012, a group of British scientists and engineers plan to drill through 3 kil of ice into a buried lake called subglacial Lake Ellsworth.
They aim to search for life forms in the isolated water as well as clues to past climate in the lake-bed sediments. This is an amazing project and one of the highlights of our austral summer season.
