FACT: The 11 South Sandwich Islands form an arc on a volcanic fault line. They are important to researchers because of their remoteness from any continental landmass, making the lavas pristine, or unaffected by continental contamination

...And last night... a new eruption. (Hawaii)

Erupting for the first time in 26 years has caused up to 200 tourists a day to descend upon the island!
