Hmmm, wonder what they unearthed. This is how things like zombies start.

Life Found Under Ice in Antarctica

Life where you'd least expect it. The frigid climes of water below the Antarctic ice sheet don't sound like the most hospitable of conditions, but researchers have indeed found cells containing DNA there. A U.S. research team based in Antarctica pulled up the simple, oxygen-dependent lifeforms earlier this week in Lake Whillans. They've been there for 100,000 years, the scientist estimate, concluding a hunt for microbial life in Antarctic lakes that began in 1996. "This is a big deal—and exciting," comments University of Bristol glaciologist Martin Siegert, because this finding is "the first clean access to a subglacial lake system."

Why are they surprised about life? They've found life inside Thermal vents from Volcanos at the bottom of the ocean, vents so hot that thermometers melt when they try to take readings, they've found life inside the radioactive cooling tanks in Nuclear plants nibbling away at the Uranium.
