Lake Under Antarctic Ice Sheet
Here is an article about exploring Lake Ellsworth underneath ice in Antarctica. Scientists from the Universities of Edinburgh and Northumbria. So far in there research they have figured out the depth of Lake Ellsworth. The depth of 105 meters shows that this site is "ideal site for future explorative missions to detect microbial life and recover climate records." If the survey work going on now goes well, then as a probe will be built and used as early as 2012/2013. Read more about this here.
