Mission to Drill Into Buried Antarctic Lake Hits Snag

Mission to Drill Into Buried Antarctic Lake Hits SnagUnder the 2-mile-thick layer of ice on a desolate, remote plain in Antarctica lies a lake that has been buried for millennia. Scientists with the British Antarctic Survey are currently camped out above that lake, engaged in an effort, years in the making, to drill down and take water samples from the lake, to see if it holds any forms of life.
