In the water from subglacial Lake Vostok, Antarctica, can inhabit bodies unknown to science, which can exist between a high concentration of oxygen. So says Sergey Bulat, a researcher at the Laboratory of Genetics of the Institute of Nuclear Physics of St. Petersburg.
"Science knows a kind of bacteria, 'lovers of oxygen." Where to find them in the lake, we could speak of a fundamental discovery in the field of evolution of human life. Otherwise, the lake would be the only place on Earth without life, "says the expert.
According to the researchers calculated, the waters of Vostok must be supersaturated oxygen, whose concentration is so high that bacteria known so far are not able to bear it.
On Wednesday, the Ministry of Natural Resources of Russia confirmed that the country's scientists drilled a hole nearly four miles deep and reached a lake represents a unique ecosystem with a depth of about one kilometer.
The researchers believe that it is probably the oldest and purest water on the planet.
