Russian scientists believe they have found a wholly new type of bacteria in the mysterious subglacial Lake Vostok in Antarctica, the RIA Novosti news agency reported Thursday.

The samples obtained from the underground lake in May 2012 contained a bacteria which bore no resemblance to existing types, said Sergei Bulat of the genetics laboratory at the St. Petersburg Institute of Nuclear Physics. “After putting aside all possible elements of contamination, DNA was found that did not coincide with any of the well-known types in the global database,” he said.

Their version of Jurassic Park. Just because you can, doesn't mean you should mess around with the unknown. This is something that is out of it's time and we have no idea what it is or if it dangerous.

An update on Russian progress is almost 2 years old now. Guess it will be a while longer before they have any discoveries to share with the world.

Meanwhile in the Gulf of Mexico, another piece of history. A deadly lake that only a select few can survive in.

Scientists have discovered a "lake" in the Gulf of Mexico. Everyone who enters this pool at the bottom of the sea will suffer horribly. Erik Cordes, associate Professor of Biology at Temple University, has researched the pool and described his findings in the journal Oceanography.
