Russian researchers have reported finding another living thing in subglacial Lake Vostok in Antarctica.

In 2016, Sergei Bulat, leader of the cryobiology lab at the University of Nuclear Physics in St. Petersburg, reported the revelation of another living thing in Antarctica: a bacterium found in a subglacial lake that must be gotten to subsequent to penetrating through four kilometers of ice.

With 14 million square kilometers, covering 10% of Earth’s surface, secured by 90% of the planet’s mostly frozen fresh water, and vast zones still unexplored, it shouldn’t be a curiosity that scientists have found new lifeforms in the frame a microscopic organisms in Antarctica.

Just 86% of its genome is similar to the rest of the known living beings; the rest of the rate is New to science. This reality makes this new bacterium a greatly intriguing being for geneticists. The second peculiarity is where it was discovered: Lake Vostok.

Somewhere around 1959 and 1964 the Soviets made a few scientific endeavors to Antarctica in which they played out various geographical overviews.

In light of the information gathered then by Russian geographer, Andrei Kapitsa specialists suggested the conceivable presence of a lake situated around 4 kilometers deep.
