Robot vs. Volcano: “Sometimes It’s Just Fun to Blow Stuff Up” – from National Geographic

19 Apr 2017

“Sharkcano.” It’s not the title of some campy summer blockbuster, but rather a real-world phenomenon that went viral in 2015, when scientists on a National Geographic expedition found sharks living inside one of the most active underwater volcanoes on Earth.

Not surprisingly, the team was eager to go back and learn more, but how do you explore an environment that could easily kill you? You send in robots, of course.

Among those featured in the video is Centre Chief Investigator Matt Dunbabin (QUT).
