    Has Hollywood still got time to knock out a monster from the lake movie before we find there is nothing bigger than bacteria there :p:

    Will be interesting to see what they find there and is a useful exercise if we want to explore a frozen moon that is covered in ice...

    I'm always amazed by the fact that we're still discovering new species; like those thingamebobs that live around the volcanic vents in complete and utter darkness at the bottom of the ocean - in a normally deadly acidic environment.

    I wonder if the ice drillers will find any previously unknown fully formed creatures?
