A NASA thought experiment entitled "Defending Human Civilization from the Pre-Bulk Eruptions" claims that a supervolcano eruption is more likely to occur in the future than an asteroid that hits the earth, according to the Daily Star. It says, "Super volcanic eruptions occur more frequently than large asteroid or cometary impacts, which are equally catastrophic to human civilization." Researchers at …

Volcanic eruption at Yellowstone: USGS forecasts further large lava flows in the future | Science | news

Yellowstone volcano is expected to erupt again, but geologists can not pinpoint the date or type of next explosion. The last eruption of Yellowstone about 70,000 years ago was a relatively small volcanic eruption. The last major caldera-forming explosion occurred about 640,000 years ago and today formed the recognizable landscape of the volcano. According to USGS scientist Jake Lowenstern, the …

The first experiment to darken the sun will mimic a volcanic eruption to reverse global warming

Scientists plan to simulate the effects of a massive volcanic eruption to combat global warming. Plans to erode the atmosphere by blocking the sunlight were previously circulated, but an experiment that Harvard researchers will launch next year will be the first to test the theory in the stratosphere. The team will use a balloon suspended 12 miles above the ground …

ASU astronomers catch red dwarf star in a superflare eruption

New observations from two Arizona State University astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope have caught a red dwarf in a violent eruption or superflare. The blast of radiation was stronger than any such eruption ever discovered by the sun, and would likely affect the stability of planets orbiting it. In addition, such superflares in younger red dwarfs that erupt, appear …
