Fahrenheit melting rocks


Man-Made Lava for Explosive Experiments

Ingo Sonder and Andrew Harp are two guys in upstate New York who make incredibly dangerous and risky explosions. Don’t worry! It’s for science. They’re researchers at the University of Buffalo’s Center for Geohazards Studies, and their work focuses on large-scale disasters like volcanic eruptions. It sounds great in theory, except there’s no natural lava for them to study in Buffalo. So Sonder and Harp brave temperatures exceeding 2,300 degrees Fahrenheit melting rocks to make their very own lava for their explosive experiments.
