All posts for the month March, 2011

The National Geographic Channel’s “Expedition Week” kicks into full gear on April 7 with the world premiere of Into Iceland’s Volcano:

“In spring 2010, the nearly unpronounceable volcano Eyjafjallajkull spewed ash clouds across Europe, bringing international air traffic to a standstill. Now, for the first time ever, a team of explorers descend into the nearby Thrinukagigur volcano crater – the only place on earth where it is possible to enter an old magma chamber. Inside the crater, the team finds crucial evidence revealing the inner workings of Icelandic volcanoes.”

The show features incredible breathtaking footage of the never-before-seen magma chamber in a dormant volcano, and talks with the scientists whose work is on the cutting edge of volcano research.  Crazybridge contributed 3D animations such as how Iceland was born, and the latest scientific visualizations of the magma hotspots under the country.

The show airs again Friday, April 8.
