Descent Into the Marum Volcano

You don’t see this every day. A couple of madmen were visiting the Marum volcano on Ambrym Island somewhere in the South Pacific Ocean and decided to see if they could abseil into the active volcano for a better looksee of the lava lake. Volcanologist Geoff Mackley was on hand to capture the video. You may have trouble hearing one of the team members speak over the wind but he is basically saying, “We’re nuttier than a squirrel’s lunchbox”.
