What If a Volcano Erupted Into Space?

  • What If a Volcano Erupted Into Space?


    You can see them on Jupiter's moon Io. You can find some on Neptune's icy moon Triton. Volcanoes erupting so explosively that they reach out into space. Imagine if our own Moon could pull that off. Or even worse — what if a gigantic volcano on Earth could spew out lava that high? What would it do to our climate? And is there any way we could we outlive such a volcanic show?

  • What If All of the Volcanoes on Earth Erupted at Once?


    What if one day you turned on the news channel to learn that every active volcano on Earth is erupting. If all the volcanoes on Earth erupted at once, would our planet survive all the ash, molten lava, and scorching gasses? How far up into the atmosphere would the ash go? Would there be anyone left to report the news?

  • What Was the Biggest Volcanic Eruption in History? The pile of lavas reach more than 17,000 m!


    History has seen some deadly and powerful eruptions of volcanoes. But the problem is that it`s very difficult to measure the volcanic power. There is the main question: What makes a volcano big? For this cases in 1980`s was made the Volcanic Explosivity Index (VEI).

    Let's take a look at the biggest volcanic eruption in human history.

  • What If All Volcanoes on Earth Start Erupting at Once


    Approaching the shores of Sicily, you're enjoying the views. The wind brings pleasant coolness, and you anticipate your vacation. But suddenly, the boat shakes, and you lose balance. You look up and see a huge plume of black smoke rising above the Etna volcano...

    And then … all volcanoes on Earth start erupting at once. Almost immediately they bring disaster to their surrounding areas with hot lava and rockfall. As soon as that stops, smoke rises into the atmosphere, and ash starts falling to the ground. It looks like snow, only black. What will happen next?

    -The active volcanoes, like Etna in Sicily, will start spitting fire and rocks. They haven't been slumbering to start with, so the magma at their core is hot and volatile.
    -Other volcanoes will have been sleeping for too long, and their stock of lava wasn't that huge to begin with, so they won't really make a blast.
    -Most volcanoes are underwater, so their eruptions will be very different. When a submerged volcano erupts, no one on the surface will even notice it if they're just a bit away.
    -There are only four supervolcanoes on the planet, the most famous being the Yellowstone supervolcano.
    -Almost immediately volcanoes bring disaster to their surrounding areas with hot lava and rockfall. As soon as that stops, smoke rises into the atmosphere, and ash starts falling to the ground. It blankets all surfaces, smothering grass, trees, and bushes, and they stop producing oxygen.
    -CO2 is a greenhouse gas, and after a while its high concentration in the atmosphere will warm up the planet again. Soon, the temperatures will rise to unbearable values, and it’ll be scalding hot until CO2 goes away at least in part.
    -About 95% of all living things are gone — it’s basically the same as what happened when a meteorite struck the planet in the era of dinosaurs.
    -When carbon dioxide dissipates and the temperature returns to more or less normal, plants will start appearing.
    -New and bigger species appear. They continue evolving and growing. At some point in the distant future, there appears the first species that learns to use tools.
    -Scientists point out there has never been an eruption of this kind on Earth, and there’s no indication it might happen in the future.

  • Volcano Eruption Power Comparison


    In this 4th episode, we compare the scale, power and size of several infamous volcanoes and how they compare in size to others. From VEI index 1 to 8, we compare the power of eruptions of volcanoes from Stromboli (VEI 1) to Eyjafjallajökull (VEI 4) to Krakatoa (VEI 6) and even to super volcanoes such as Yellowstone (VEI 8) and even hyper-volcanoes!

    Mt Tambora (VEI 7) has wrong plume height and tephra released, the correct one should be: Plume Height: 40km/25mi, Tephra released: 160km3.
    Rinjini is spelled wrongly, it should be Rinjani
    Additionally, Hyper-Volcano is not a real word and does not exist! But it sounds amazing!

  • What If All The Worlds Supervolcanoes Erupted At Once


    If all 12 or so supervolcanoes on Earth erupted at once, civilization would likely collapse. The volcanoes would spew thousands of tons of ash and toxic gas into the atmosphere, which would linger for months and block out sunlight. This could set off a volcanic winter as global temperatures plunge, killing crops and leading to worldwide famine.

  • BBC - Volcano Live, Iceland Erupts: A Volcano Live Special


    It 2010, the ash cloud from an unpronounceable Icelandic volcano brought Europe to a standstill. In this Volcano Live special, Kate Humble heads for the source of the ash to ask whether we should now be preparing for more of the same. On her journey, Kate meets the scientists monitoring the country's most dangerous volcanoes, and investigates the biggest eruptions in Iceland's past - including a catastrophic 18th-century event that killed thousands in Iceland and also appears to have led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people across Britain and Europe. In 2010, it became clear that Britain is well within the reach of big Icelandic eruptions. To help prepare for the next one, what can we learn from the people who live right alongside them?

  • Yellowstone volcano eruption: How NASA plans to protect Earth from a supervolcanic end - TomoNews


    YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, U.S.A — NASA plans to stop the Yellowstone caldera from erupting by pumping it full of water and siphoning geothermal energy from it.

    According to the BBC, the space agency has developed a plan to drill underneath Yellowstone and pump it's magma chamber full of water, extracting the heat. Cooling the magma rock would occur at a rate of 1 meter per year, meaning it could take thousands of years to eliminate the risk of eruption.

    The cost of NASA's plan is estimated to be US$3.5 billion, the BBC reports. The space agency expects the clean energy derived from heat extraction would offset this via lower power costs and the creation of geothermal plants in the area.

  • Bronze Age Volcanic Eruption of Thira; October 26, 2006


    Grant Heiken
    Independent consultant, author, geologist (retired) Los Alamos National Laboratory

    Was the Bronze Age Volcanic Eruption of Thira (Santorini) a Megacatastrophe? A Geological/Archeological Detective Story

    Akrotiri was an island town located along the southern coast of Thira (Santorini), Greece. It was but one of many Minoan towns scattered across the Aegean that were part of a powerful kingdom centered on Crete. Life on the island and possibly across the Aegean was shattered in the 17th Century BCE by a large volcanic eruption. The eruption preserved evidence of the sophisticated lifestyle of the people of Akrotiri in the same way that the 79 CE eruption of Vesuvius preserved Pompeii. Clues about daily life are evident in the frescoes found in some of the larger houses that portray well-groomed people, large galleys, agriculture, domestic animals, and abundant sea life. There are no written records describing the destruction of Akrotiri during the Bronze Age eruption, but many oral histories within cultures around the eastern Mediterranean carried the memory of this catastrophic event for centuries. Was this eruption a turning point in Minoan history or but one event in the natural political/cultural evolution of a culture?

  • What if all Volcanoes Erupted at Once? | #aumsum #kids #science #education #children


    Even if we ignore underwater volcanoes, there are still about 1500 active volcanoes on earth. There are at least 20 volcanoes erupting on earth at any given moment.
    Now, if all the volcanoes were to erupt at once.
    Firstly, the entire atmosphere will be covered with clouds of ash and volcanic gases leading to respiratory problems for many.
    Secondly, volcanic ash may lead to clogging of plane turbines and eventual engine failure, resulting in the grounding of all the airplanes.
    Thirdly, as sunlight will not be able to penetrate the volcanic ash, entire world will be plunged into darkness.
    Lastly, Acid rain formed due to the reaction between volcanic gases and various atmospheric gases will destroy crops worldwide and also lead to Ocean Acidification.

    Four foreign tourists and a local tour guide were killed early Tuesday morning when Mayon volcano erupted in the Philippines.
    A tour group comprising three tour guides and five foreigners were climbing the volcano when it erupted at approximately 8am. Tour guide Kenneth JeSalva later told a local TV news station that four of his group were killed when a rain of huge rocks as bis as a living room began falling on them.
    Reports said up to seven other climbers in other groups on the mountain were injured.
    The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Philvolcs) said in a press release later that the eruption was a phreatic eruption, when the magma heats ground or surface water, creating an explosion of steam, water, ash and rock.
    Such eruptions can occur with little or no warning. Philvolcs said that no volcanic eruption was imminent and the alert level remains at 0.

  • Alaska’s most active volcano, Pavlof Volcano, will erupt very soon, according to experts - TomoNews


    ALASKA PENINSULA, ALASKA — One of Alaska’s most active volcanos will be erupting soon, according to experts.

    Warnings have been issued by the Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) of the imminent eruption of Pavlof Volcano, located on the Alaska Peninsula. The AVO is an organization formed to study and monitor volcanic activity in the state.

    The AVO increased an alert level for the volcano from “normal” — green, to “advisory” — yellow on July 1.

    The volcano erupted earlier this year in March triggering a red alert, the highest of four levels.

    That eruption sent an ash cloud as high as 37,000 feet into the atmosphere and covered villages to the northeast — including Nelson Lagoon — with a layer of ash that was as much as two-thirds of an inch thick.

    Reports from nearby scientific and coast guard observers suggest that the eruption produced volcanic mud flows and lava flows. The eruption was the first for Pavlof since November 2014 and noted by the AVO as the most energetic since 1996.

    Pavlof is one of the most consistently active volcanoes in the Aleutian arc. It has erupted six times since 1996 and 21 times in the past 50 years.

  • German hikers among dead after Philippines volcano eruption


    A volcano has erupted in the Philippines, killing five people from a tour group climbing the mountain. Four of the victims are said to be German, the fifth is a Filipino guide.

    Seven others were injured when Mount Mayon, one of the most active volcanoes in the country, sent a cloud of ash and rocks hundreds of metres into the sky in an eruption that lasted just over a minute.

    The authorities say 27 hikers were on the volcano at the time. One said it suddenly started raining rocks like in hell.

    The level of alert has not been raised as the volcano's activity has not intensified.

    Although the surrounding area has been covered in ash there are no plans to evacuate nearby houses.

    Mount Mayon has erupted nearly 50 times since records began 400 years ago. In December 2009, tens of thousands of residents left their homes when the volcano began spouting ash and lava.

  • Volcano Villarrica erupts in southern Chile, thousands evacuated

    Volcano Villarrica erupted in southern Chile on Tuesday morning at about 3 a.m. local time. Prior to the eruption, 3,385 people were evacuated from their homes as a precaution.

    On Monday officials observed volcanic activity in the volcano’s crater, prompting them to declare a “red alert.” No one was injured during the eruption, and when the volcano quieted down about an hour after it began erupting everyone returned to their homes.

    Villarrica’s eruption on Tuesday spewed ash and lava up to 1,000 metres into the air. Senior meteorologist at Jason Nicholls says that the volcanic ash from the eruption will probably spread to Buenos Aires and cover much of the less-populated parts of Argentina.

    The 2,840-metre high Volcano Villarrica is a stratovolcano, formed by many layers of hardened lava and volcanic ash. Villarrica is rather unique because along with a conical shape that defines most stratovolcanoes, it also has a crater at its brim. The crater was formed when the edifice of the volcano collapsed. As one of Chile’s most active volcanoes, Villarrica is also one of the few volcanoes in the world with an active lava lake within its crater.

    According to Chile’s Ministry of Mining, Villarrica’s last major eruption was in 1985.

    1. Volcano Villarrica’s location in Chile
    2. Villarrica formed by many layers of hardened lava and volcanic ash
    3. Crater forms at the top of the volcano
    4. Gas bubbles come up the volcano along with magma, causing lava to be thicker
    5. People evacuated from nearby towns
    6. Villarrica erupts, spewing large amounts of lava and ash

    VOICEOVER (in English):

    “Volcano Villarrica is one of the most active volcanos in South America.”

    “A stratovolcano, Villarrica was formed from many layers of hardened lava and volcanic ash.”

    “Villarrica also has a crater at the brim of Villarrica, created when the volcano’s magma chamber was emptied after a previous, large eruption.”

    “As with most stratovolcanoes, Villarrica is capable of erupting with great force because gases dissolved in the magma increase pressure within the volcano. The gas is released at the top along with the magma.”

    “Prior to the eruption, 3,385 people were evacuated from two nearby towns as a precaution after Chilean officials noticed activity in Villarrica’s crater this past week.”

    “Villarrica erupted on Tuesday morning at around 3 a.m. local time, spewing lava and ash 1,000 metres into the air.”

  • Strombol Volcano Eruption & Australia’s Smallest Town – Today’s Biggest News


    Strombol Volcano Eruption & Australia’s Smallest Town – Today’s Biggest News

    Bushfire season in Australia starts around October. While that sounds like a little way off, now is the time when people in country areas start to think about their bushfire plan. But most bushfire plans are made for adults so a bunch of students in Victoria have come up with a kid-friendly program.

    Who better to give kids advice about bushfires than other kids who've experienced one! Back in 2009 a bushfire destroyed huge parts of Srathewen. More than 20 people died and heaps of buildings including the school burned down. Ever since then, the town has been really focused on bushfire prevention and the students created a bushfire plan they can follow to stop it from happening again. They do regular checks at school, like measuring the dryness of leaves, and made videos to educate other people! This week they presented their plan to a big group of international experts who loved it so much they reckon it could be used by other kids in Australia and overseas!



    A volcano off the coast of Italy has started to erupt! The volcano is on Stromboli island and right now it's spewing out lava, ash and smoke! No one was on the island when it erupted so no-one's been hurt. But the lava's started a lot of fires so water bombing planes flew over to put them out.



    Having a statue of yourself would be pretty cool right? Well, Donald Trump just got one! A town in Slovenia has just unveiled an eight-metre tall statue of the US president and it's well unique. Slovenia's the home-town of the President's wife Melania and don't worry she also has her own statue! Lucky her. We're not sure how they feel about their likenesses but it's definitely a sight to see.



    Australia's tiniest town is Cooladdi! It's in rural QLD and is home to just three people! So how can a town be a town if hardly anyone lives there? Technically, in Australia a town is a town if it has at least 200 residents. Cooladdi used to have around 300 but over time roads were closed, trains stopped passing by and people started moving out. Cooladdi is still a town though because of The Foxtrapp, a motel, cafe and post office all in one. With a slow but steady business. So Cooladdi gets to keep its postcode. Cooladdi isn't the only lonely town in the world. Cass in New Zealand is a one-man town. The last time someone checked, Swett, in the US had two humans and one dog. And La Estrella in Spain is home to a couple that had a film made about them, titled, the last two.



    There's a new baby emu at Sydney Zoo! The one-month old chick couldn't get enough of the spotlight during a video shoot.

  • Air space closed over part of Iceland as Bardarbunga volcano begins erupting


    Aviation authorities in Iceland have closed airspace around the Bardarbunga volcano after it began erupting beneath the glacier.

    The country's airports remain open. The aviation warning code has been raised to red, the highest level, which signals a significant emission of ash is likely.

    If the ice melts, there is a risk of flooding in the area north of the glacier.

    The Bardarbunga is part of a large system of volcanoes in the centre of Iceland covered by a 500-metre thick ice cap.

  • Underwater volcano erupts giving birth to an island


    Subscribe to ITN News:
    Coast guard footage from Japan has captured the moment a new island is born. The eruption of an underwater volcano in the Ogasawara island chain allowed the new land to burst from the water amidst a plume of ash 600 metres high. The 200 metre diametre island joins an estimated 6,000 islands within Japan's territory, and if it survives its eruptions it will technically become part of Tokyo, despite being over a thousand kilometres to the south. Japanese media reported that the last time an island was formed in the region was in 1973-4 as the nearby Nishinoshima was created. Officials have said that it is too early to start naming this new island though, as there have been instances in the past when newly formed islands have sunk back into the water. Report by Laurie Blake.

  • Nyamuragira Volcano, Kimanura Eruption in 2012


    Nyamuragira volcano (3058m) is a large basaltic shield volcano located about 15 km north of the city of Goma in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Nyamuragira (or Nyamulagira) is frequently active, either within the summit caldera, or more problematically from varying locations on the flanks. The flank eruptions are frequently accompanied by persistent lava fountaining, resulting in rapid enplacement of parasitic cones (of which more than 100 can be found), and lava flows which may extend for many kilometers due to the high fluidity of the potassium-rich low-silicate lava.
    The 2011/2012 Kimanura eruption, which began on 06.11.2011 is limited to a fissure system running in an approx. west-east orientation about 10km east of the summit caldera. Lava largely flowed northwards, extending to distances of just over 10km from the fissure within 6 days during the period of maximum efflux. Two crater complexes, each with multiple vents, were created over the eruptive fissure which has a length of at least 1km. The areas surrounding the vents are buried in a layer of smallish and fragile lapilli. After cessation of activity at the vents of the primary (western) crater complex, activity continued along the same fissure but slightly further from the summit of Nyamuragira creating a secondary (eastern) crater complex which was observed from 23-25 Jan. 2012.

    A longer video of the expedition can also be found in my youtube account.

  • What Makes a Volcano Erupt?


    Even though the earth is 4.6 billion years old, it is still generating heat, and that's due to radioactive decay, says USGS volcano expert John Eichelberger. And more heat is getting generated than can just calmly flow out -- conduct out of the planet. So excess heat builds up, and this causes melting. So volcanoes are earth sweat, in a way....

  • ITV News Volcano erupts in south Iceland & Man takes pictures from space on digital camera


    ITV News

    Volcano erupts in south Iceland.

    Man takes pictures from space on digital camera.

    A man in West Yorkshire has managed to snap some stunning photos of the Earth from space using a compact Canon digital camera and a hot air balloon kit that cost him just £500.

    Robert Harrison, of Huddersfield in West Yorkshire, constructed his space photography kit using off-the-shelf components that cost him around £500. He mounted a standard, four mega pixel Canon digital camera to a hot air balloon. The camera was hooked up to a small, Linux-based computer that was set to wake up the camera at set intervals and snap a picture. A GPS unit allowed Harrison to recover his camera when the balloon eventually came back to Earth.

    The resulting photos are so stunning, that NASA has apparently been in touch with Harrison to learn how he managed to capture such high quality images so cheaply. Several galleries of photos can be seen at Harrisons Flickr page, while his blog contains details of his various launches and the hardware used to construct his clever hot air balloon rig.

  • NASA | Magnificent Eruption in Full HD


    On August 31, 2012 a long filament of solar material that had been hovering in the sun's atmosphere, the corona, erupted out into space at 4:36 p.m. EDT. The coronal mass ejection, or CME, traveled away from the sun at over 900 miles per second. This movie shows the ejection from a variety of viewpoints as captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), NASA's Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO), and the joint ESA/NASA Solar Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO).

  • New Zealanders Pay Tribute to Victims of White Island Volcano Eruption


    We will recover but it's traumatic. Flowers, gifts and messages line the pier at Whakatane, about 30 miles from the New Zealand volcano on White Island, as many pay tribute to the victims.

    As a New Zealand island volcano vented more steam and mud, authorities delayed plans to recover the bodies of victims from a deadly eruption two days ago and announced Thursday that the death toll rose after two people who had been hospitalized died.

    Volcanic tremors on White Island were intensifying to a level not seen since an eruption in 2016, the GeoNet seismic monitoring agency said, calculating a 40% to 60% chance of another eruption within the next 24 hours.

    The deaths of the two came after authorities said they had confirmed that six people died and and that the bodies of eight other people are believed to remain on the ash covered island. Many of those who survived the initial volcanic blast suffered horrific burns. Another 28 people remain hospitalized, including 23 in critical condition

    Meanwhile, Australia was sending a military plane to bring some of the Australians injured in the eruption to Australia for specialist medical care. Authorities expected to transport 10 injured patients to New South Wales and Victoria states, beginning Thursday.

    Monday's eruption sent a tower of steam and ash an estimated 12,000 feet (3,660 meters) into the air. Many of the injured suffered severe burns, were in critical condition and were being treated at hospital burn units around New Zealand.

    GeoNet said in an early evening update that shallow magma within the volcano appeared to be driving the increased activity. It also said there was a low risk to the mainland. The volcano is about 50 kilometers (30 miles) off New Zealand's main North Island.

    Police believe 47 visitors were on the island at the time of the eruption, 24 of them Australian, nine Americans, five New Zealanders and others from Germany, Britain, China and Malaysia. Many were passengers aboard the Royal Caribbean cruise ship Ovation of the Seas.

    Survivors ran into the sea to escape the scalding steam and ash and emerged covered in burns, said those who first helped them. Geoff Hopkins watched the eruption from a boat after visiting the island and told the New Zealand Herald the eruption quickly turned menacing.

    He told the paper that injured people transported on their boat were horrifically burned on their exposed skin and even under their clothes.

    The first confirmed death was of a local man, Hayden Marshall-Inman, a guide who had shown tourists around the island. Former Whakatane Mayor Tony Bonne said Marshall-Inman was a keen fisherman and well-liked.

    In the town touted as the gateway to White Island, the volcano has an almost mystical significance, its regular puffing a feature of the landscape. Whether the island, also known by its Maori name Whakaari, will ever host tourists again remains uncertain.

    Many people were questioning why tourists were allowed to visit the island after seismic monitoring experts raised the volcano's alert level last month.

    The island had been mined for sulfur until a 1914 accident in which at least 10 people were killed, and a landslide destroyed the miners' village and the mine itself. The island became a private scenic reserve in 1953.

    Daily tours allow more than 10,000 people to visit every year.

  • What if all active Volcanoes in the world will erupt at once? Can you Survive?


    Worst scenario that a volcanoes can be possibly done!
    The simultaneous eruption or the Eruption of all volcano of the world at once!
    Try now to imagine again if 1,500 of these volcanoes erupt at once or simultaneously. #volcano #eruption #howtosurvive

    Let’s try to consider all the possibilities or out come that will happen.
    1. Collapse almost all human infrastructure .
    You wouldn’t be able to out drive that giant hot cloud and rocks as hot as 1,000 degree Celsius would be traveling faster than as 700 kilometer per hour and hit those infrastructures.
    2. Pitch Black or plunge into Darkness
    The thick layer of ash from the eruption would totally blanket the entire Earth.
    That will block completely the incoming sunlight.
    The planet would be pitched into complete darkness, and that is going to devastate photosynthesis, destroy crop yields and cause temperatures to plunge.
    So in general if all this thousand volcano will erupt at once, the whole globe will be blanket with a thick ash.
    3. Suffocation and Contamination of all living creatures.
    All living creatures mostly or almost 100 percent depend on Oxygen we breath.

    Volcanic eruption emit Volcanic gases such as hydro chloric acid, hydrogen fluoride, hydrogen sulfide and sulfur dioxide which can possibly mix with the air or oxygen we breath and can cause suffocation for all breathing creatures.
    It can become acid rain also when they condense high in the atmosphere. That acid rain would contaminate groundwater and the ocean's surface.
    Ocean acidification would kill off corals and marine creatures with hard shells. The extinctions would travel up the ocean food chain, wiping out fish and other marine life.
    2. Creation of Tsunami
    The eruption of all volcano under the ocean can greatly contribute in creating unimaginable tsunamis or gigantic waves from the ocean that can wipe out all thing nearby oceans.
    Buildings and houses will be wipe out and destroy due to the vast impact of waves.
    Cities and town near ocean will be submerge in water.
    3. Melting Heat and subzero temperature or biting cold.
    Just after or at the moment of all the thousand volcanoes are erupt, ashes could cover the earth surface and trapping all the heat from the all eruption of lava that reaches as hot as about thousand degrees Celsius .
    This could be possibly create a greenhouse effect of melting heat.
    And those not resistance to heat things or living creatures could melt or go to its extinction.
    The blanket of ash in the clouds will bounce back the sunlight, and the penetration of light or warming effect of sunlight is nothing
    Due to absence of the sunlight, which is the main source warmth of the earth, subzero temperature will comes next, biting cold will experience and that could possibly last for how many years.

    For instance, the eruption of Mount Pinatubo in 1991 one of the two largest eruptions in the 20th century cooled parts of the world by up to 0.7 degrees Fahrenheit or 0.4 degrees Celsius for two years.
    We know that it is almost impossible for this catastrophe to human to survive.
    But at least there maybe a dot portion that we can do to survive from this apocalyptic disaster.
    The sci-fi strategy is also possible way.
    1. A few humans can live on in the orbit of the earth.
    2. In a deep underground bunkers built by well-financed governments or rich moguls, waiting for the atmosphere to clear.
    3. You can stay in a cruise ship in the middle of the ocean.
    And if you are lucky to be on that place, oh please don’t forget to have enough food to survive.

    Luckily its a relief to think that, such a scenario is very unlikely to happen.
    Scientists say the chance of every volcano on the planet erupting at once is so small that it is so impossible.
    But is it better to be prepared for everything!
    The Big Question is that.
    But what if it will happen?
    Would you Survive?
    Would the Earth as it we know will survive?
