An international team of scientists have reportedly called off a research mission aimed at determining whether life exists in an underground lake in Antarctica.
Researchers working on the project cited a number of setbacks, including an attempt to create their first bore hole. The British Antarctic Survey project had intended to drill through the ice using near-boiling water to reach the lake, which they believed to have been sealed off from contact with the surface for as much as half a million years.
