A Russian team drilled through the ice, breaching prehistoric Lake Vostok for the first time. Microbes and DNA from water fleas, mollusks, and something related to a sea anemone was discovered. Logged by Sunstroke author David Kagan in Doomwatch Legacy.

I think it's a catch-22, though, Natasha. If we can't understand our own planet enough to maintain it with care and consideration, what business do we have mucking about with others in space?

I agree, we need to be very careful and tread lightly while we study our home. These pristine, uncharted places should be held sacred, inasmuch as we should respect them most highly and mess with them as little as possible while we learn.

Yet, it seems unwise to jgo to someone else's backyard to play with their toys just because we keep breaking our own. We don't know who or what is maintaining the other yards. ;)

Regardless of whether or not there is life out there, it's all nature. If we screw it up out there, it's gonna bite us in the boo-boo eventually too. We need to learn how to care for own own home, which means understanding and compassion. Hopefully we can figure that out in time so we CAN go muck about more in space though, 'cause space is awesome. :)

Interesting and I'll bet you there's a city below the ice too.

This has implications for finding life on Europa - as well as other planets and moons in our solar system, and even planets and moons in other solar systems.
