Mars' Ancient, Slow-Growing Monster Volcanoes Are Revealing Red Planet's Secrets

  Mars' Ancient, Slow-Growing Monster Volcanoes Are Revealing Red Planet's Secrets 100 samples of Martian space rock have allowed scientists to better understand the history of our neighboring planet.This extinct volcano is 640km (397 miles) wide even at its narrowest point, greater than the distance between London and Glasgow, or Los Angeles and San Francisco. And Olympus Mons isn’t alone in the Earth-beating stakes—three other Martian volcanoes are more than 10km (6.2 miles) high.

The last volcanic eruption in the Canary Islands took place on the island of La Palma in 1971. El Hierro was formed when three volcanoes erupted 100 million years ago. That landslide would then spark a tsunami that would cause extensive damage all down

Panic has spread among the 86,000 residents on the island after the largest tremor hit on Saturday afternoon, approximately 17.4 miles below ground.

It measured 2.7 on the Richter scale, and was followed almost exactly 24 hours later by a magnitude 2.6 tremor, before a third of 2.1 hit on Monday at midnight.

Despite the frequency of tremors, residents and tourists staying on the island did not feel the earthquakes - due to their depth underground.

The volcano's last two eruptions occurred in 1949 and 1971, a gap of just 22 years.

If it was to blow, Cumbre Vieja could cause a mega tsunami . Some experts believe the volcano is in the initial stages of failure, meaning a big enough eruption could cause a massive landslide to enter the Atlantic Ocean. 

What Would Happen If a Hurricane Hit an Erupting Volcano?

  What Would Happen If a Hurricane Hit an Erupting Volcano? In addition to the cars flipped, the roofs collapsed, and the streets flooded, this season’s unprecedented string of devastating hurricanes also hit a much grander target: a volcano. The Caribbean island of Montserrat, home to the active Soufrière Hills volcano, twice suffered blows: first an almost-direct hit by category-5 Hurricane Irma, then a direct hit by category-5 Hurricane Maria. The volcano’s peak this year was, thankfully, more noisy than explosive. No volcano-related calamities were reported from the storm.

It could result in waves as high as 600m, travelling at around 450mph meaning the African coast would be submerged within an hour, and the southern coastlines of Ireland and the British Isles in just three and a half hours.
