Flash and Ash Photograph by Sigurdur Hrafn Stefnisson, National GeographicLightning pierces the erupting Eyjafjallajökull volcano’s ash cloud in spring 2010. (See more pictures of lightning at Eyjafjallajökull volcano.) While exploring Thrihnukagigur’s interior might not shed much light on why Eyjafjallajökull erupted so violently in 2010, the knowledge gained from the expedition could help scientists understand volcanoes in general, scientists say.
“It could help us understand the plumbing systems in volcanoes,” Sigurdsson said, “how the magma moves around, … the conduits that magma travels along, and what it leaves behind when it’s finished.”

Great Concept

An eye-opening way to illustrate the global water crisis.

This video was made for Solidarités International, a group of humanitarians focused on making the world a better place by bringing attention to our three basic needs: water, food, shelter.

From the website:

We are particularly committed to fighting water-borne diseases - the most frequent cause of death worldwide. Our programs and expertise focus on providing access to drinking water and sanitation as well as the essential fields of food security and reconstruction.

The group currently has a presence in 15 countries and has brought aid to 13 others. Read more about their specific missions here.
