Corsair is here welcome to my new video Scientists have discovered the remains of several types of organisms in a lake over 1km beneath the ice. The discovery was made by researchers at the Subglacial Antarctic Lakes Scientific Access project who recently drilled down to Lake Mercer a subglacial body of water in Antarctica. Incredibly, by carefully sampling the water, they were able to find the remains of tardigrades, algae, diatoms and small creatures that had seemingly been down there for thousands of years. The discovery adds to the growing body of evidence suggesting that subsurface lakes on icy worlds such as Europa could potentially harbor extraterrestrial life forms.
