Welcome to Episode 109: Lake Vostok & Organism 46-B! Underneath Antarctica’s miles of ice, you’ll find approximately 400 subglacial lakes. The largest of these is Lake Vostok, discovered during the Soviet Antarctic Expeditions of 1959/1964 and later confirmed by British scientists in the early 1970s. What makes this lake so special is that it has been covered in ice, untouched, for at least 15 million years. The intense pressure from the ice above creates an environment where organisms can thrive, grow, and live in the liquid water below. According to urban legend, Russian scientists were able to reach the liquid lake through ice core drilling in 2012, and what they found living in the water was so incredible, and so terrifying, that it was immediately sealed and kept secret from the public. Just what is Organism 46-B? Tune in to this episode to find out!
