  2. Antarctic drill team first to reach where ice, ocean and land convergeRead the original story w/Photo

    Saturday | Space News From SpaceDaily.Com

    Using a specially designed hot-water drill to cleanly bore through a half mile of ice, a National Science Foundation -funded team of researchers has become the first ever to reach and sample the "grounding zone," where Antarctic ice, land and sea all converge. Data gathered from samples of sediment taken in the grounding zone will provide clues about the mechanics of ice sheets and their potential effects on sea-level rise.

    Drilling deep into Antarctic ice this month, researchers were able for the first time to take a close look at the grounding zone of an ice sheet, where Antarctic ice, land and sea all converge. Sediment samples from the half-mile bore hole will provide clues about the mechanics of ice sheets and their potential effects on sea-level rise, but the drilling also revealed an unsuspected population of fish and invertebrates living beneath the ice sheet, the farthest south that fish have ever been found.

    Wednesday Jan 21 | Scientific American

    Stunned researchers in Antarctica have discovered fish and other aquatic animals living in perpetual darkness and cold, beneath a roof of ice 740 meters thick. The animals inhabit a wedge of seawater only 10 meters deep, sealed between the ice above and a barren, rocky seafloor below - a location so remote and hostile the many scientists expected to find nothing but scant microbial life.
