I will keep my eyes open for any breaking news on this.

Again, barring any delays, they should break through tomorrow.

Anyone that see's anything relevant, please post it here.

Re: All Eyes on Lake Vostok...To Be Breached Today!!!
This story seems weird to me. I don't pretend to know anything about drilling at those depths but why does it take 24 hours to drill down just 2 meters in ice? I guess I could see if it were solid rock or something like that but ice? Heck my little ice auger can cut an 8" hole through 24 inches of ice in under a minute. Also, at those depths, why wouldn't the water pressure break the remaining ice at the bottom of the hole?

Anyone know the answers to these questions?
 Quoting: Hawgzilla


The water pressure will eventually help break the ice remaining at the bottom. In fact, the pressure being released has been discussed amongst the scientist who are working on this and other drillings happening in antarctica. They have hypthosiezed that pressure being released could throw off the balance of the ice sheet creating "unknown damage."

Lake Vostok is not an isolated lake. There is a massive network of subterranean lakes including Vostok.

But anyway.. at the end of Lake Vostok is what’s known as a gigantic masscon—a mass concentration of metal, very similar to the masscons they discovered on the Moon — a gigantic, circular-shaped, metallic object deep under the ice at the end of Lake Vostok. So between the "unknown damage" this could create and the masscon there has been quite a few delays in the prusuit of this objective.
--
But it is our opinion that what they are doing now, right now, is rushed. The objectives a few are prusuing may have direct consequences to the many.
 Quoting: Kori 3722011


disagree, its a magnetic anomoly

link or its just your opinion on the cylinderical object
it actually looks a lot like what ancient cities look like using that tech

masscons? google doesn't even return a good def of your terms

1.high pressures
2.volcano
3.the water is radioactive

I vote for 3 and the magnetic thing that they have to see, you will never see, because its a nuked modern city from 10,000 years ago
and they will release a crap load of nuke waste, to boot

research evacuations of antarctica..."rumored" rad poisionings murdered people. there is no way we are gonna know what they find for 10+ years
the new z. cops tried, and were blocked
that is the most locked down chunk of dirt and ice on the planet
