East Antarctica: The coldest, most desolate location on Earth. Two-and-a-half miles below the ice cap is Vostok, a six thousand square mile liquid lake, over a thousand feet deep, left untouched for more than fifteen million years. Now, marine biologist Zachary Wallace and two other scientists aboard a submersible tethered to a laser will journey 13,000 feet beneath the ice into this unexplored realm to discover Mesozoic life forms long believed extinct--and an object of immense power responsible for the evolution of modern man. In this sequel to The Loch and prequel to MEG: Nightstalkers, New York Times bestselling author Steve Alten offers readers a crossover novel that combines characters from two of his most popular series. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

The first book on the subject, this monograph examines the phenomenon of a huge sealed, freshwater lake, isolated from the rest of the world by kilometers' thick ice. The existence of melting ice at the bottom of the huge Vostok Lake has served as a model and inspired the team planning the Galileo space craft to gather data on the ice sheet of the Jupiterian moon Europa. The book provides interpretation of, and calculations for, stimulating factors for possible melting and a huge lake's existence at the bottom of the Martian ice sheets.

Vostok, Antarctique. L’endroit le plus inhospitalier sur Terre. Des températures qui plongent jusqu’à – 90 °C. En 1957, les Russes y ont installé une base permanente, posée sur un glacier de 3 500 mètres d’épaisseur, ignorant alors qu’à cet endroit, sous la glace, se cache un lac immense, scellé depuis l’ère tertiaire. Pendant des décennies, équipe après équipe, puits après puits, ils ont foré la glace. Pour trouver, peut-être, des formes de vie jusque-là inconnues. Vingt ans après la fermeture de la base, un groupe d’hommes et de femmes y atterrit, en toute illégalité. Ils vont réchauffer le corps gelé de Vostok, réveiller ses fantômes. Ils sont là pour s’emparer du secret du lac. S’ils échouent, il ne leur sera pas permis de rentrer vivants chez eux. Situé dans le même futur qu’Anamnèse de Lady Star, Vostok narre l’incroyable aventure d’une très jeune femme, Leonora, condamnée à laisser les derniers vestiges de son enfance dans le grand désert blanc.

Excerpt: Vostok 24 hours watch.Vostok (Russian: , meaning East*) Watch Makers, Inc. produces mainly rugged military and diver mechanical watches at its factory in Chistopol, Tatarstan, Russia. It also makes clocks and watch movements for other watch brands. The Vostok Company was founded in 1942 when one of the Moscow watch-making plants of the First Moscow Watch Factory was evacuated to Chistopol, a small town located on the Kama River in Tatarstan. Only defense equipment was produced during the war years, but as soon as the war was over the company started making mechanical wrist watches. However, the Company did not begin using the "Vostok" brand name until the 1960s. *Presumable "Vostok" brand was named after the Vostok space program, which gave the initial advancement of the USSR in the Space race (as some others soviet watch brands, named to space topics in 1960s - Poljot and Raketa).

Lake Vostok, located below the 4000 m thick Antarctic Ice Sheet, is the largest subglacial lake in Antarctica. The lake water has not been sampled due to concerns of forward contamination. However, ice cores available from the Vostok 5G well of depths greater than 3538 m represent lake water that has accreted to the overhead glacier from various regions across Lake Vostok. Here, we report the characterization of bacteria and fungi from ten accretion ice sections (15,000 to 18,000 years old), and two deep glacial ice sections (1 to 2 million years old) from the Vostok, Antarctica 5G ice core. Fungi, as well as bacteria, were characterized by fluorescence microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, culturing, and sequence analyses of ribosomal DNA. A total of 703 bacteria and fungi were cultured from the accretion ice of subglacial Lake Vostok. Mean cell concentrations were from 2.3 to 12.3 cells per ml of ice meltwater, of which 5 to 84% were viable. These cell counts are substantially lower than previously reported values. A total of 54 unique ribosomal DNA sequences were determined and compared to recent taxa, of which 36 were fungi and 18 were bacteria. Fungi most closely related to Rhodotorula, Aureobasidium, Cryptococcus, Cladosporium and Penicillium, and bacteria related to Carnobacterium spp., Bacillus spp., Caulobacter and Micrococcus were identified based on sequence analysis from cultured isolates. These findings, plus tests for growth at low temperatures, indicate that Lake Vostok contains a mixture of heterotrophic psychrotolerant and psychrophilic species. The results revealed new genera of microorganisms not previously reported in Lake Vostok accretion ice, lower abundances of microorganisms, and demonstrated the necessity to use multiple methods to thoroughly characterize environmental ice.
