Science can be a work in progress, only when you have spent science days beside an incredibly hot pile of lava will a fool turn down the opportunity to cook some sausage. The sizzle-fest began on Sunday at the volcano Geldingadalir, a volcano close to Reykjavik in Iceland, which recently ignited with glorious enthusiasm.
Video footage captured by scientists and shared with Reuters shows the result of the delicious result being suddenly stuffer into a hotdog bun and dipper in ketchup as if it had not just cooked in literal lava. Residents of Iceland, who have traveled through more than 50,000 earthquakes in the past few weeks, were aware of what had happened.
The pull before the eruption is that the magma pressure on the hard surface of the volcano does not cause the rock to crack. These cracks instantly fill with some liquid magma, which hardens, and then the pressure starts to increase further and create more cracks. Every time one of these cracks appears, it causes a small earthquake that is not always easy to notice on a human-submerged scale but the Richter scale instruments can lift with reliability. These earthquakes give scientists an idea of where volcanic magma paths are likely to cause an eruption as well.
When the volcano finally erupts, the uninterrupted flow of magma creates what known as harmonic vibration, the uninterrupted release of seismic energy from the movement of magma flowing underground. It will also pick up by the instrument, but it will not come to the notice of the people. Presumably, to a volcanic expert, the rumble of static earthquakes calls for weapons for Sausage Sizzler within the Richter range and announces that nature has chosen a perfect hotdog roller. Thus the effectiveness of cooking sausage, unfortunately, remains unclear with videos including reviews of how hot dogs tasted.
Given that most volcanic eruptions are a very foul-smelling matter with the smell of sulfur (like egg rot) a particularly intense accent – cooking in lava probably does not do much for the taste. The site closed to the public the next day due to high levels of gas pollution, meaning it was probably already quite white on Sunday. Iceland’s sausage party is not even the first time the world’s heat has prepared some meat, just as last year a man banned from the U.S.’s Yellowstone National Park for cooking two chickens in one spring.
You might think that the punishment seems a bit harsh for someone to get out into nature, but the previous escape to the water’s edge is not only killing people but also dissolving them within 24 hours.
