secret rivers found in antartica

While my first love is film, I take a keen interest in science, especially biology and earth science, as well as astronomy. I know my understanding is on a superficial level, but I am constantly amazed by nature and natural phenomena. It’s what draws me towards natural history programmes like a moth to a flame: it’s all just so damn beautiful. Anyway, thisarticle about a joint US-Russian expedition to lake Vostok excites me; who knows what they may find in the dark abyss, which last saw sunlight aeons ago. If there are hydrothermal vents down there, there could be an ecosystem completely different to that found elsewhere. Moreover, I’m guessing that’ll have implications for finding life elsewhere in the universe.
