200, Billboard, Prometheus Global Media . They drilled 3,600 meters (nearly 12,000 feet) through Antarctic ice and discovered an underground lake twice the size of Delaware that has likely been sealed off from the surface for 15 million years. Over the course of this very slow process, mantle rock, which usually lies hidden 6 kilometers (3.7 miles) below the crust, has been forced to the surface. Microbes, single-celled or multi-celled microorganisms, feed off this hydrogen. He explains that when olivine, a common mineral made up of magnesium, iron, silicon, and oxygen, comes into contact with seawater it destabilizes, allowing the water to penetrate more deeply into the rock. Icy moons of Saturn and Jupiter, Europa and Enceladus, have water below their surfaces; we know that, says Klein. Calcium carbonate, which makes up the shells of marine organisms, covers more than half of the ocean floor. To see these microbes in action, Schubotz hopes to collect samples of deep-water mantle rock and feed it different chemical foods such as hydrogen, carbon dioxide, and methane to try to spark to life dormant organisms that those samples might contain. Meanwhile, in front of us, Klein has extended a mechanical arm from Deep Rover and is attempting to grab some of what looks like carbonate rocks on the seafloor. As Schubotz and Klein slice and pulverize the rock samples and Sylva and Seewald vaporize seawater, I step outside to the roof deck to get a breath of fresh air.

History of National Wildlife Federation,
Carefully, slowly a crane lifts Nadir, then Deep Rover, over the deck and plops them into the water. You should lighten up, says Colin Wollermann, a crop-haired American who will be piloting Deep Rover. The passengers sat back, relaxed as best they could, and waited for help. As the crew and I scurry past, the few hundred brown boobies ( Sula leucogaster ) that call the archipelago their home lunge at our ankles, shins, and knees. Forming a family is the most incredible sensation which cant be defined in few words.
