Adrenaline Junkie Scientist Goes Close to the Center of the Raging Volcano

Geoff Mackley has taken his hobby of researching natural phenomena to extreme lengths…

The 36-year-old scientist from New Zealand descended 400 m down the crater of the Marum Volcano in South Pacific. In his heatproof suit, Mackley got several dozen meters close to a lake of bubbling lava that was 1,150ºC hot and stood there for about 45 minutes.
