Vostok 1 and the first man in space.

Strapped to a Vostok 8K72K launch vehicle, spacecraft Vostok 1 made history as it launched the first man, Yuri Gagarin, into space.

It was a clear day on 12 April 1961 as soon-to-be cosmonaut, Soviet pilot Yuri Gagarin stepped out to board the vessel that would make him the first person to not just pass the boundaries of our atmosphere into space but to also the first to orbit the Earth. The spacecraft that would make this a reality? Vostok 1 — a 4,725kg spacecraft that would mark the beginning of the Vostok programme; a fleet of six manned spacecraft

Scientists have resumed drilling to Lake Vostok in Antarctica

Russian experts, leading to the drilling of the well subglacial lake Vostok in Antarctica, have resumed work, told RIA Novosti the head of the press service of the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute of Hydromet (AARI) Sergei Lesenkov.

"Drilling has resumed after a short break for necessary maintenance work. We can not yet predict exactly when to leave the ice-water boundary, as there are several methods for the determination of the border, and they have all the precision of plus or minus 20 meters," — said Lesenkov.

The coming summer Antarctic season (at the south pole, we recall, is now the height of spring) prepares us to a sensational discovery: the researchers will doburit borehole 5G and "plunge" and finally, in the water of one of the most mysterious places on earth — Lake Vostok.

It's fresh and warm water about the size of Lake Baikal, chetyrehkilometrovoy clad layer of ice. The lake is about 250 km long and about 50 km, the depth of up to 750 meters. The water temperature is warmer than in the lake — about 18 degrees.

Lake Vostok

Many of you probably saw the story as we know about the transfer of relict lake in Antarctica. There is a hypothesis that we found a preserved condition of the Earth 14 million years ago. In particular B.Kivi writes in his book:

Among the great lakes just east of the planet to this day remains completely beyond the reach of man. Moreover the fact of its existence has been established recently. The lake is under chetyrehkilometrovoy layer of ice in one of the most remote areas of the coast of Antarctica. It so happened that it was on this lake,

In the waters of the Antarctic Lake Vostok unknown class of organisms found

 

Scientists who have studied water samples taken in May last year of the Antarctic Lake Vostok, discovered in these bacteria, which can not be attributed to any known subkingdoms bacteria, said of the Laboratory of Genetics eukaryotes Petersburg Institute of Nuclear Physics (PINP) Sergey Bulat.

 

"A week ago, was actually completed last analysis (there will be another, but the results are unlikely to change anything.) After exclusion of all known contaminants (foreign organisms) … was detected bacterial DNA which does not coincide with any of the known

Russian scientists have extracted the first ice of Lake Vostok in Antarctica

Russian experts on Thursday during drilling operations in Antarctica have learned from the first sample well clear of ice formed from the waters of the relict Lake Vostok, the press service of the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute of Hydromet (AARI).

"At a depth of 3406 meters on January 10 received the first core of clear lake ice, 2 meters long, inside which there is a vertical channel filled with ice white blistered," — said in a statement, reports RIA "Novosti".

According to the newspaper VIEW, in February last year, Russian

Russian scientists have reached the surface of the subglacial Lake Vostok, located in Antarctica

In 2012, the event will take place worldwide — penetration relic subglacial Lake Vostok with an estimated age of about 30 million years. So far in the history of the earth no one has looked before.

Russian scientists have reached the surface of the subglacial Lake Vostok in Antarctica is located at a depth of 4000 meters. The drilling process took more than 20 years. Now, explore the lake will be continued in December 2012 when the Antarctic summer comes.

Russian Antarctic Expedition drilling subglacial lake Vostok successfully completed: the weekend, scientists have reached the surface of the lake. This
