Yellowstone volcano eruption: NASA to SAVE the world from supervolcano erupting

NASA scientists are creating an ambitious plan to prevent an explosion of a Yellowstone volcano that could even end human life by drilling a hole.

The space agency will drill into the sides of the volcano in order to pump water down under high pressure to lower the temperature of the volcano and “prevent a future super volcano eruption which would devastate humanity”. The super volcano in Wyoming, USA, is one of the world’s most feared volcanos and is so powerful that even hydrothermal explosions can blast debris two kilometres into the sky. NASA’s plan to cool down the supervolcano would cost around $3.46 billion. Yellowstone erupts every 600,000 years and it has been about 600,000 years since it last exploded. Yellowstone National Park lies on a magma reservoir that creates geysers and hot basins and is able to destroy humanity. The United Nations has estimated that an eruption could leave the country with enough food reserves for 74 days...MORE

Funny. Maybe the egg heads ought to notice what happens in some high temp/high pressure vessels, maybe like a boiler when dissimilar temperature liquids are injected into the fracas….. sounds like our betters want a calamity rather than preventing one.
