Explore rare types of volcanic eruptions that marshal the energy that lurks beneath the surface of planet Earth. The story of these big blow outs is a tale of havoc and mayhem: mass extinctions, climate collapses, and violence beyond anything humans have ever witnessed. See the impact of volcanism on Earth and other worlds in our solar system.

Can a supervolcano erupt in our own time? The answer is surprisingly close to home.

Narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch.

Recommend for ages 8+, grades 4-12.
