Oh, USGS. Oh, Kilauea. Masterpiece. The visuals, the music, the bits of geologic geekery – perfect. Put this one on full screen, turn your volume up, and tell people to bugger off for five minutes if you haven’t already.
Am I the only one looking down in that lava lake and thinking, “You know, if we had a lava-proof boat, we could sail that sucker…”?
Muchos gracias to Michael Hill, who shared this with me on G+ ages ago. It’s sad I’ve only just now gotten round to watching it. It’s sad that this is the first time in my life I’ve heard of Zero-Project. It’s sad I didn’t know that the USGS was capable of this kind of hotness. Lava + metal = scorching. Yum!
(I’d swear one of you linked to this in comments, too, but I can’t find it now. Whoever you are, thank you, too!)
