Lava flow and two cans of Coca Cola. The first can had a tiny hole punched in the top to prevent it from randomly exploding, curious to see if it would fountain as it heated up but, the can just sort of squirted coke.
The second can was sealed but, fell over. The lava caused a leak on the lower side. Footage is first from my Nikon D800 and an old GoPro Hero 2.
The lava was flowing a bit too cool causing it to be less fluid. This series of videos is scientific in nature seeing how differing sealed objects react to the 2000 degree lava hitting it. If anyone’s worried this is littering, relax. These items all melted.
Think of it as returning metal/materials that we took from mother nature and planet earth.
Don’t try this at home. Of course if you do have a lava flow at your house, trying this is the least of your problems.
Safety precautions were taken and only the GoPro was slightly in harm’s way. By the end of this outing most of my camera gear was just a bit sticky. There was limited room to move about so, settings are what they are.
Yes, the cans are gone.
There’s nothing for future geologists to dig up.
The islands legal and illegal landfills will keep them busy for decades if they themselves haven’t been covered by lava in the next 100 years or less.
This wasn’t shot in the national park.
It was an area littered with over 30 years of hiker trash.
