Antarctica’s Frozen Lake Vostok, Isolated for 20 Million Years, Breached By Russian Drills

The Russian scientists drilling into ancient buried Antarctic Lake Vostok have reached their destination, the Russian news agency Ria Novosti reported today. The team is apparently alive and well despite a week of suspicious radio silence, but more details are to come about what they’ve found buried under two miles of ice.
“Yesterday, our scientists stopped drilling at the depth of 3,768 meters and reached the surface of the sub-glacial lake,” the source reportedly said in a story posted Monday, Feb. 6.

We’re gonna need a bigger boat. And grenades. Maybe a tank.

These are the jaws of Megalodon - a close relative of the great white shark that is, mercifully, extinct. It was much larger, as cheery naked blue man will illustrate (why do you never look to your left, naked blue man?)

It also probably had the strongest bite in history. Its teeth have left scars on the bones from several fossil whales, as well as cradling the buttocks of this slightly non-plussed Victorian gent.
