The lakes and ET
The frozen surface of Lake Vostok, the largest lake in Antarctica, has similarities with Europa,the moon of Jupiter. Some ice cores found 400 m above the water line may indicate that there is microbial life in the waters of the lake. The discovery of life in Lake Vostok would mean a lot to the possibility of life in Jupiter’s Europa. In 2008, NASA began a mission at Lake Untersee researching in its high alkalinity waters for extremophiles. The finding of such organizations could further strengthen the argument for extraterrestrial life in extremely cold, methane-rich environments.
