Mountains of Madness: Scientists Poised to Drill Through Antarctic Ice and Into Gothic Horror
What might lurk beneath Antarctica’s 5 million square miles of ice was the subject of speculation by sci-fi writers in the 1930s. One of the icy products this subgenre of Antarctic Gothic horror spawned is HP Lovecraft’s novella, At the Mountains of Madness, in which scientists drill beneath Antarctica’s ice — only to discover horrid things preserved there. Now, scientists are finally enacting Lovecraft’s scenario: Over the next several weeks they are drilling into three subglacial lakes hidden beneath thousands of feet of ice in Antarctica.

What they will find as they sample the lakes and send cameras into their bellies remains to be seen. But one thing is already clear: Lovecraft was actually right about far more than his readers could have realized.

Cool thread N!
“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.” – Carl Sagan

The drilling is taking place now and is to continue through the end of the month.
It has not been called off. But the British team is no longer drilling due to "technical issues".

Hmm...wonder what happened to cause them to suddenly stop, when being so close?

Also, was it the same lakes they're currently drilling?

I stand corrected. Looks like the russians broke through last spring...and would be sampling.

Aha! You found Lovecraft!

Just the other day I downloaded "The Mountains of Madness".
I think his complete works are to be found at a website dedicated to Lovecraft, google for it.

Lovecraft didn't just write horror, but many essays and scientific texts as well as poetry. It seems to me he was likely also one of the last of the generations which were much attracted by and deeply into ancient history of man, including Atlantis.
