Well done. As my Vietnamese colleagues say: ‘don’t give up in the middle of the river’

Best wishes for your recovery and review, it’s been absolutely fascinating to watch and learn about Antarctic hot water drilling.

I’m looking out for round 2!

Charles

The science is still sound and I am sure you will return. In harsh conditions or cutting edge science you need a bit of luck for success, despite all the planning and preparation, so better luck next time.

The programme will work on obtaining funding for a second attempt, although this would likely not be for a number of years. Thanks for following our progress and taking the time to post.

The camp and living quarters and everything ? This isn’t The end though ? You will be back next year ?

It’s all been so incredibly clever ! I’ve learned such a lot :)

Please keep updating the status of your project, our team is still watching carefully from Washington and will be in contact soon.

It appears that the technology of hot water drilling and of transporting the probe down the borehole has not been properly addressed before the expensive field work was started

Thank you for keeping us up to date on the continuing efforts of the Lake Ellsworth exploration! The Ellsworth Live blog has been and continues to be an invaluable source of information to follow both the ups and downs of this exciting and fundamental scientific and technological venture! I do hope you will continue updating us on future developments and activities both out in Antarctica and back home in the UK. I for one will definitely be following EL for the coming years!

All the very best for the ‘take down’ and journey home, and despite your disappointments, well done all of you!

Remember ‘we do these things not because they are easy, but because they are hard’. Your project has been an inspiration and I look forward to the next chapter.

Wishing you success in your future endeavors. This is only a setback. We at WAIS did not meet our goal last year for our replicate coring but went back to the drawing board and were successful this year. I expect the same will happen with your team.
Best for the new year,
Mark
