Via a drone, no less.  The imagery here is absolutely breathtaking.

From the National Geographic YouTube page content:

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.

Good JuJu here.  Although dangerous as all hell.

  1. With my fear of heights this made my hands sweat and I’m not kidding. Very dangerous but also so interesting to see.

    • Yeah, that was a cool video to watch. It’s amazing what people are doing with today’s technologies. Drones are a useful tool in these situations.
