An international team of scientists say an expedition searching for life within Antarctica’s Lake Vostok has yet to produce evidence of a single native organism, although they say they will continue to conduct research until the findings are conclusive.
Preliminary research seems to suggest that the lake is lifeless. In a report published on Friday, researcher say the first samples retrieved from the underground lake do not contain any evidence of life. Scientists reportedly expected to discover signs of bacteria in two places within the subglacial lake: at the top of the lake between the ice and the water, and in the sediment at the bottom of the lake.
