Lake Vostok

This is probably world's most enigmatic  sub glacial lake.

This lake is almost 13000 ft beneath the ice sheet on antarctic. scientists estimate that the conditions of  this secluded lake might have been unchanged for 15 million years

the decades long probe of this lake is left just fifty miles away to peep into the contents of this lake.The presence of microorganism in the depth of it's water are already discovered by the experts. piercing through the lake would provide a chance to meet the life that we had never met before.

skeptics are of the view that this drilling could contaminate the fresh water.
