Awakened from a 100-year sleep, the volcano has destroyed all life around

Space Agency NASA has revealed the stunning satellite picture, you get a volcanic eruption. Lava burst was so powerful it rose above the clouds and it can be seen from the International space station. In recent times, the volcano above Raikoke, uninhabited volcanic island in the North-Western Pacific ocean near Sakhalin island, has erupted in 1924 and 1778 years. In 1924 he was quiet for almost 100 years and just the other day, June 22, monster ash and volcanic glass. "The explosion of the Earth" was stunningly powerful and beautiful as it can be powerful and beautiful natural disaster.

Volcano Raikoke

"as far As the stunning," says Simon Carn, a volcanologist at Michigan technological Institute (the picture you see at the very beginning of the article). "Reminds me of the classic photo of the eruption at Sarychev peak, which occurred in the Kuril Islands about ten years ago. Ring white puffy clouds at the base of the column says that the column is drawn surrounding air and condenseries water vapor. Or it might be an updraft from the interaction of magma and seawater, because Raikoke is a small island and the streams probably went in the water."

The century-old "dream" of the volcano was interrupted around 4:00 local time on 22 June 2019, when out of his crater with a width of 700 metres and got a huge stream of ash and volcanic gases. Several satellites and astronauts on the International space station watched as a thick plume of smoke rose, and then drawn into the whirling storm in the North Pacific ocean.

On the Morning of 22 June, the astronauts took a picture of the volcanic plume (the image above), the rising narrow column, and then crumbling in the so-called umbrella region. In this region the flux density and the ambient air are equal, and the plume stops growing. Ring of clouds at the base of the column is water vapor.

How dangerous are volcanoes?

Specifically in this case, the eruption on Raykoke none of the people are not harmed, because the island is uninhabited and located far from civilization. But since the ash eruption contains sharp pieces of rock and volcanic glass, it poses a serious threat to aircraft. Ash eruption rose to 13 kilometres, and some parts of the flood reached a height of 17 kilometers. For comparison, most aircraft do not fly above 10-km altitude. In addition, the volcano literally destroyed all life on the island Raikoke — now he has become "quite" uninhabited.

However, volcanoes are not only of destruction. Perhaps it is because of the volcanoes on earth, the dinosaurs .
