In the interests of thematic continuity, I present you with an aquatic story: for the first time in your life, you can watch a (heavily-mediated) underwater volcanic eruption:

In the first direct observations of an underwater volcanic eruption, newly unveiled video shows plumes of ash and molten drops of sulphur spewing from a crater deep in the North Pacific.


A remotely operated research submarine captured the images in March 2004 and October 2005 of the volcano NW Rota-1, scientists report in Thursday's issue of the journal Nature.
