Supervolcanoes

Supervolcanoes

Supervolcanoes! One of the most destructive forces in the solar system, these volcanoes erupt with a force thousands of times larger than normal volcanic eruptions. After one such volcano, Toba, erupted 70,000 years ago, up to 90% of all life on Earth vanished.

This show looks at the nature of these monsters, not only on Earth, but around the solar system. Visit Neptune’s frigid moon Triton and the ultimate volcanic world: Jupiter’s moon Io. And after stopping at the legendary North American hot spot, Yellowstone National Park, we have to ask ourselves the ultimate question: can a supervolcano erupt in our time?

“Supervolcanoes” is accompanied by a live presentation prologue.

Narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, Star Trek Into Darkness).
