SCIENCE NEWS! There’s life way, way below Antarctica — chilling out in a subglacial lake. Just a few weeks ago, a team of scientists confirmed that half a mile beneath the Antarctic ice sheet, a bunch of tiny, single-celled organisms are alive and well… in a lake boasting sub-zero temperatures and no access to sunlight. 

The discovery is groundbreaking, leading some to wonder if there might also be life on a similar place — Europa, one of Jupiter’s moons. 

John Priscu is one of the lead scientists behind the study. In a talk at TEDxBozeman, he explains what it’s like to be a scientist drilling though thousands of feet of ice while living in a tent in Antarctica.

Sculptures by Emil Alzamora

Peruvian sculptor Emil Alzamora enjoys exaggerating and distorting the human form in the name of his beautiful and unique creations.  His eye catching works serve as manifestations of the pleasure and pain of the human experience, and often display unusually exaggerated limbs and contorted flesh, in order to communicate psychic trauma.

Whet?
