British Scientists To Explore Lost Antarctic Lake - Will have first sample back 21/12/12
[link to news.sky.com]

British scientists are making final preparations to drill 3km through the Antarctic ice to a lake that has been cut off from the rest of the world for up to half a million years.

The 12-man team hopes to find lifeforms in Lake Ellsworth that have evolved in isolation to withstand the cold, lack of nutrients and total darkness.

Early next week they will begin melting a 36-cm wide borehole through the ice using a unique hot-water drill.

Pumping 90,000 litres of water at high pressure through a continuous 3.5km hose should allow them to break through to the lake in three or four days.

Re: British Scientists To Explore Lost Antarctic Lake - Will have first sample back 21/12/12
In December 2012 a team of British scientists and engineers will drill through 3 km of solid ice into a buried lake to search for life forms in the water and clues to past climate in the lake-bed sediments.

The consortium, funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), is a partnership between two of NERC’s Centres of Excellence — British Antarctic Survey and the National Oceanography Centre - and the UK university sector. Over 30 scientists and engineers have been involved since 2004.

Academic profiles

Three academics from the University of Bristol's School of Geographical Sciences are part of the Lake Ellsworth project. Principal Investigator, Professor Martin Siegert and aquatic biogeochemist Professor Martyn Tranter arrived at the drill site in Antarctica on 4 December. Some of the water samples retrieved will be analysed back in Bristol next year by biogeochemist Professor Jemma Wadham.

Professor Martin Siegert

Martin Siegert is Professor of Geosciences in the University of Bristol's School of Geographical Sciences. He is the Principal Investigator on the NERC Consortium Grant award and Chair of the subglacial Lake Ellsworth Steering Committee and Programme Board.

He initiated the subglacial Lake Ellsworth programme, gathered the consortium of members, led the NERC application and oversaw its development through advice from the Programme Manager Chris Hill.

He has been involved in subglacial lakes research for over 15 years and has been to Antarctica twice before, including the Lake Ellsworth site as part of the Chilean expedition in January 2006.

Professor Siegert said: "The two main science questions (is there life in subglacial lakes? Are there climate records within the lake floor sediments), and all the questions that will follow from them, are fundamental and profound. Personally, I feel hugely proud of everyone involved in the consortium - to lead such a programme is a genuine and unique privilege."

Professor Martyn Tranter

Martyn Tranter is Professor of Geography at the Bristol Glaciology Centre, School of Geographical Sciences, University of Bristol

He is leading the part of the subglacial Lake Ellsworth project that will retrieve and analyse water samples from the lake. The water will be tested to see if microbial life is active biogeochemically beneath Antarctica. He will also conduct some simple experiments on the mud on the lake floor to see how chemically reactive it is, and how much solute it can provide to the lake over time. From this, it will be possible to work out how quickly water flows through the lake.

He has been to Antarctica five times, working with the National Science Foundation’s Long Term Ecological Research Program in the McMurdo Dry Valleys where Scott trained prior to his last Antarctic expedition

Professor Tranter said: "This is just about the tops for me scientifically. It would mean the same to me as if Wolves won the Champions League and the Premiership three seasons on the bounce. I’ve been researching glacier meltwater chemistry all my professional life, and I have been predicting life in subglacial lakes for some time, so to be part of the team that actually shows this is the case would be mega."

Professor Jemma Wadham

Jemma Wadham is Professor in Glaciology at the Bristol Glaciology Centre, School of Geographical Sciences, University of Bristol.

She is working with Professor Martyn Tranter on the analysis of water samples from Lake Ellsworth and has been researching how microbial life leaves a fingerprint on subglacial waters.

thought this would have been of interest to GLP?

Lifeforms? Why are they looking for one and for what purpose and why now especially in light of all we discuss here such as this Thread: Foretold Floodings, Ice-Age, Magnetic Reversal and more....E.T. Contactees Messages (Video Collection & Analysis).

Of what purpose will this serve? Is this in anticipation of some sort of impending ice age? Hmmmm! Just last week there were also reports that the government is working to lower heating costs? Hmmmm!

The thought of an ICE_AGE just keeps popping up in my mind.

Not to be mean, but it is the british science community and no one usually gets excited by what they get up to as they are ever so secretive lot.

Think, we hear a lot of Operation Paperclip and the technology that flowed to America from the Nazis, and yet nothing of the Tizard Missions and the technology that was shared.. yet they are both halves of the same coin. While we can openly discuss the Tizard missions we still do not know the full extent of the technology transferred, Tizard went on to set up and chair the MoDs "flying saucer working party".

I find it interesting that one side only ever gets discussed, what the Russians where doing with their drilling, or what others do, yet what we (Britain) see to generally slip through the cracks.

I know some will come out and slag Britain off for being a nothing, tow bit, piss ant country, yet I think that response, and the general lack of response has been crafted over the last century or so..

I think it is planned that way, think of Allied secret service operations in Bombay, India during WW2, while the US had a massive high walled, heavily guarded complex to deal with their "Ultra" communications, Britain stuck it's Ultra communications center in a wooden shed in a back garden guarded by a bloke sitting behind a wooden table.

While both dealt with the same/similar topics, one was complete overlooked while the other drew the attention almost in the vain of a magician where you should always watch what the other hand is up to, and I think it is still the same today..

While this is so out in the open as to be ignored I truly wonder what they are really up to..

Sorry for the meandering response.. but I find these topics deeply interesting *thumbs up* thank you for posting it.
