Spectacular Volcano Video






Video technology and science converge on an active volcano in 

Vanuatu, where explorer Sam Cossman operated camera-mounted 

drones to capture high-definition images of the spectacular yet 

dangerous Marum Crater. Cossman and his team piloted the drones 

over the 7.5-mile-wide (12-kilometer) caldera while confronting toxic 

gases and boiling lava. Although two drones succumbed to the harsh 

environment, the team was able to bring back video and photos that 

will help scientists learn more about the volcano and the life around it.
