British Team to Drill Looking for Life Under Lake Ellsworth in Antarctica
This article is about a team of British scientists drilling through the ice sheet above Lake Ellsworth in Antarctica. They are looking for signs of life under the ice sheet. If they do find life it will provide more evidence that life could exist on distant worlds without a sun's light and heat. In the article they compare the lake to Jupiter's moon, Europa. The team is expected to do the research with a special drill probe in 2012.
