Adventurers go into exploding volcano

Two adventurers went into an active volcano in the South Pacific Ocean, and lived to upload the video of their descent online. The video showed adventure enthusiast Sam Cossman and photographer George Kourounis diving into an area of the Mt. Marum volcano just above the lava. They got so close that specks of lava melted their protective gear as they descended. In a Huffington Post report, Kourounis said diving into the volcano was “kind of like a reverse climbing of Everest…The volcano fought back at us, we had to deal with terrible weather, tremendous heat from the lava, descending and ascending 400 meters of near vertical, loose rock face, acid rain so strong that it could have come from a car battery, and a variety of other craziness.”
