I saw this experiment, and I am assuming it was an experiment in eliminating volcanic eruptions in the future with active volcanoes! I do hope this can work and stop the dissaster of the volvanoes. Wish you all success in your endeavor”
If indeed this was to stop volcanic eruptions, (and I hope this experiment proves it), then you would need a tremendous amount of ice to get to many volcanoes. Truly interesting. Good luck in your endeavors to stop future disasters at least with volcanoes.
Valcanos have been around ice and it keeps comming so not sure why they did this. That girl sure was some talker tho. lol
When Mt. Saint Helens blew, it was covered with snow. it melted the snow, caused a pyroclastic (sp.?) flow, and destroyed EVERYTHING in its path. It’s an interesting experiment, but snow can help cause further problems, not stop the flow of lava, plus the lava during an eruption, doesn’t come out in a drizzle, it comes out in huge amounts, nonstop.
It’s a nice experiment, but not very realistic.
Would have been nice had we been told the purpose of this display … can’t imagine it would have anything to do with stopping volcanic eruptions. Since one of the principle investigators was a professor of sculpture, perhaps it is a foray into a different method of sculpting.
Ruby, the reason I mentioned volcanoes was because of the question posed by Freddie Alvarado. Other than that, it would have been very beneficial if they had given the reason for their experiment, as you said.
Very cool!! I loved the way the lava became reflective as it cooled. I would’ve loved to have a hunk of it after it was completely cool, of course. It would make beautiful jewelry and art.
