Cooking Hot Dogs on Lava From the Iceland Volcano

A group of scientists studying the Geldingadalsgos volcano in Fagradalsfjall, Iceland decided to prepare sausages and toast matching buns using the lava that was running downhill. The volcano, which erupted on March 19, 2021 after 6,000 years of being dormant, was small and considered safe to approach with caution.

Scientists at the foot of a volcano in Iceland used its lava as a giant grill to cook sausages as they studied the eruption.
