Lake Effect

Russian scientists are about to sample water from a lake that has been completely cut off from the rest of the planet for 15 million years. It's thought that any critters living in the hyper-oxygenated water will provide insight into metabolic processes, as well as provide information on what Enceladus and Europa, which are thought to have a similar environment, are like.
