Scietists in Antarctica are in a race against time to drill through a two-mile-thick ice cap covering a sub-glacial lake that has been cut off from the rest of the world for up to a million years.
12 British scientists are about to embark on a gruelling expedition to the Antarctic in a quest to uncover a lost world frozen beneath the ice for hundreds of thousands of years.
They believe a lake, that has been buried by ice for up to a million years, contains unique microbes that could provide clues to how life evolved on Earth.
