Killing a Killer Volcano

I am still about, busy with visitors and getting ready for my better-half’s return. Just read this article and wanted to share it with you all;

Instead Nasa have conceived a very different plan. They believe the most viable solution could be to drill up to 10km down into the supervolcano, and pump down water at high pressure. The circulating water would return at a temperature of around 350C (662F), thus slowly day by day extracting heat from the volcano.

 from BBC Future’s article Nasa’s ambitious plan to save Earth from a supervolcano.

Yes, I am getting myself sucked into the whole super-volcano panic! I am making a plan and forming ideas for a survival pack, not just for volcanic eruptions, but also for any emergency situation.

My hubby arrives home tomorrow, but I promise to drag my arse into the office and write a long overdue post for you all about my conversion into prepperhood. ;)
