Lake Vida is one of the numerous lakes crushed beneath the Antarctic ice sheet. And there’s life in it. Microbial life, but life all the same. And sure, the lake’s only about 60 feet under the ice, (unlike lake Vostok which is 13,000 feet under the ice) but it’s still impressive. The lake is super salty, devoid of light and oxygen, and cold enough to freeze sea water and still something lives in it.
