Making Lava

Featured Video Play Icon

In this video, NPR’s Adam Cole takes a trip to upstate New York to find out how to make lava – and not the kind with vinegar and baking soda! We’ve featured footage from this duo before. Since most lava flows don’t occur in predictable or controlled circumstances, it can be tough for scientists to study their fluid properties and flow behaviors. Set-ups like this one allow more precise experimentation, as well as opportunities to test other wild ideas. For more, check out the full video and the Syracuse University Lava Project.  (Video credit: NPR Skunk Bear/A. Cole; via skunkbear)
