(Linz, April 1, 2014) What are volcanoes, actually? How are they formed, and what effects do volcanic eruptions have on nature and on human beings? Birgit Hartinger, an infotrainer in the Ars Electronica Center, will answer these and other questions at the next Deep Space LIVE this coming Thursday, April 3rd. She’ll also discuss the webcams that have been set up at hundreds of locations worldwide to monitor volcanoes and to make it possible to observe their huge eruptions live. Plus, there will be screenings of photographs of volcanic ash probes. These images taken with the electron microscope in the BioLab at the Ars Electronica Center reveal fascinating details.
