May 16, 2011: Floodgate of Hell





Quote:
In June 2010, a team of scientists and intrepid explorers stepped onto the shore of the lava lake boiling in the depths of Nyiragongo Crater, in the heart of the Great Lakes region of Africa.
I admit it. I'm a hopeless volcano addict.
Lotta nice shots on the link.

Beautiful! Awesome.

Volcanos remind me of zits.



glatt  Monday May 16 08:36 AM

Imagine if you could harness that energy? There's so MUCH of it down there.



CaliforniaMama  Monday May 16 10:39 AM

It's like looking at the sun.



Spexxvet  Monday May 16 10:49 AM

It's the Eye of Sauron.



BigV  Monday May 16 12:16 PM

Wow.

Picture 20...

I had an image in my head of it being, ooh 8 feet or so across until image 20...

ZOMFG!



Sundae  Monday May 16 01:55 PM

Wow!

The lava outside the rim is twisted into weird black shapes that look very like the Bog Bodies retrieved from peat bogs. Or tortured souls climbing out of hell, if you'd rather.

These guys are crazy. They pretend they are taking all sorts of precautions and being careful, but one burp and they are all dead.

Not unlike Thanksgiving with my family.


plthijinx  Monday May 16 07:42 PM

Yeah jim. ..great choice!

Glatt, would that be a burp, beltch or a fart?



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday May 17 12:26 AM

Print a bunch of copies of that first picture, and cut then to fit the bottom of potholes. Scare the crap out of people.



Wombat  Tuesday May 17 12:46 AM

I didn't really appreciate the scale of the lake until I saw the guy in the bottom-left of this pic: http://inapcache.boston.com/universa..._2011/bp20.jpg
