A few years ago I wrote an article about artificial volcanoes and their scientific equivalent, volcano models. So it pleased me to see that for the 50th anniversary of the University of East Anglia, the geoscience faculty got together with some other experts, including a pyrotechnician, to build a volcano among the gentle swales of England and set it off, which they did last night. It was much livelier than a mud volcano would have been. It all went with an informative/celebratory blog, norfolkfireworkvolcano.com, and of course the Twitter account @norfolkvolcano and a Facebook page as well. Congratulations, UEA!
I do believe that not even Burning Man has tried this stunt. What do you say to that, Burners?
