Images: Lake Vida microbes and drilling into Lake Vida in Antarctica
Main image: Researchers drilling into Lake Vida in October, 1996.
Inset: Computed tomography (CT) image of a section of ice core from Lake Vida showing the organic (microbe-containing) material surrounding sediment in an icy matrix. The image has been artificially colored by the researchers so that organic material appears bluish-purple and sediment appears orange-red.
