Travel around the globe, and below its surface, to plumb the mysteries of the always-fascinating volcano.
From gorgeous, pyrotechnic lava floes on Hawaii to awe-inspiring mushroom-clouds, humans cannot help but be fascinated by the earth-shaking grandeur of volcanoes. For four billion years, volcanoes have impacted life on earth. Empires have been destroyed, civilizations decimated Ė not to mention the possible extinction of dinosaurs and spurring of Ice Ages. And, like tuning a car engine by measuring its emissions, we can learn how our planet works by measuring the elements emitted from its diabolical vents.
In this incredible special presentation, travel with INSIDE THE VOLCANO to hotspots around the world made infamous in history Ė from the volcanic islands of Greece to the towering mountains of Italy; from the long ridges of Iceland to the eruptive volcanoes of Indonesia; and of course here in the United States, from the mountainous Cascades range in the Pacific Northwest to the hotspots over Hawaii. This is a breathtaking journey across time and across continents.
Most amazing of all, using cutting-edge computer graphics, take a one-of-a-kind journey into the magma chambers of the volcano, deep underneath the earth's crusts. Voyage INSIDE THE VOLCANO to fully experience the living, thriving spectacle of your planet.
