We are all doomed.
Quoting an unnamed source, a Russian newswire is claiming that scientists have successfully drilled into an Antarctic lake that has been sealed off from the world for some 15 million years.
The Russians, who clearly do not watch American movies, had to drill through almost two and a half miles of ice to reach Lake Vostok, which has (or might have) an ecosystem that we can only guess about. In terms of hard to get to places this ranks somewhere not that far away from bringing back photos and geologic tchotchkes from the far side of the moon.
Rumors suggest that FBI has loaned a smart but mavericky conspiracy theorist and a skeptical redhead to supervise.
