First Video Of A Volcanic Eruption 1200m Underwater

This year a research expedition sent a remotely operated vehicle 1200m below the surface of the Pacific Ocean and within 3m of an exploding volcano. Today the first video footage from that expedition was released. Ka-boom.

OK, maybe there's no ka-boom because there's no sound, but just looking at this video makes me imagine all that water wooshing by as everything begins to shake. Simply stunning. [Physorg]
