No, that wasn’t a new type of bacteria found in Antarctica

Remember the new type of bacteria Russian scientists found in a sub-glacial lake in Antarctica?  Turns out someone jumped the gun on the announcement and they’re now saying it was actually contamination.  Whoops.  Though I still wouldn’t be surprised if they eventually discover something like this in one of the many sub-glacial lakes currently being explored down there.
