Can @NASA Tame the @YellowstoneNPS Supervolcano?

Can @NASA Tame the @YellowstoneNPS Supervolcano?

It sounds like the plot of a disaster movie, only the approach will take years to have any effect. In case you haven’t heard yet about NASA’s either incredibly brilliant or amazingly outlandish plan to protect us from the supervolcano in Yellowstone National Park (and potentially the other 20 or so supervolcanoes on Earth), it is basically the highly complicated equivalent of adding a bit of cold water to a hot bath to cool it down. According to an article on the BBC website, NASA’s idea centers around extracting some of the heat from the volcano to prevent its eruption: “They believe the most viable solution could be to drill up to 10 km down into the supervolcano, and pump down water at high pressure. The circulating water would return at a temperature of around 350°C (662°F), thus slowly day by day extracting heat from the volcano. And while such a project would come at...
