What looks like a “lava bomb” from the bowels of the Earth VIDEO – Science – Life

For almost a month and a half, Cumbre Vieja has not stopped “thundering” on the Spanish island of Palma. The volcano constantly expels magma from the depths of the Earth, so the so-called “lava bombs” are not uncommon.

Geochemist Harry Geiger of Albert-Ludwig University in Germany is currently investigating the eruption of Cumbre Vieja in Palma with an international team of scientists.

During one of the research trips near the opening of the volcano, they were struck by a “lava bomb” rolling down the slope at high speed.

When he stopped, Geiger and his colleagues approached a round piece of rock one meter in diameter. Despite its relatively small dimensions, it weighed about half a ton.

On closer inspection, the scientists felt the rock radiate heat from the core, whose temperature is above 900 degrees Celsius.

“Lava bombs” are very dangerous, because as projectiles they can physically destroy very easily the object on which they fall and cause a fire.

For example, in 2018, a “lava bomb” the size of a basketball hit a tourist boat off the coast of Hawaii, injuring about twenty people, and four ended up in hospital.
