    NASA wants to prevent the Yellowstone super volcano from destroying the US

    NASA wants to prevent the Yellowstone super volcano from destroying the US | Fox News

    NASA believes the Yellowstone super volcano is a greater threat to life on Earth than any asteroid. So it’s come up with a plan to defuse its explosive potential.




    Yellowstone National Park is the pride of the United States. It's an untouched wilderness. It’s overflowing with scenic landscapes. And its colourful hot pools and geysers attract tens of thousands of visitors every year.
    But underneath this beautiful — but thin — skin is a lurking monster. An enormous pool of magma sits high in the Earth’s crust.


    “I was a member of the NASA Advisory Council on Planetary Defense which studied ways for NASA to defend the planet from asteroids and comets,” Brian Wilcox of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) told the BBC. “I came to the conclusion during that study that the super volcano threat is substantially greater than the asteroid or comet threat.”
    The US has more of these hotspots than any other country in the world.

    According to a couple of documentaries I watched on the Science Channel, the one that Naples basically sits on is the most likely next super volcano to erupt. It's named Campi Fleigrei, Italy
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    He's been warning us for years.

    Seriously, it's over-do for an eruption.
