NatGeo Channel Publishes Video of Volcano Made With a Drone

Unmaned aircraft with camera GoPro was able to capture volcano from the short distance not reachable for a human even in protective suit.

National Geographic TV showed the first video captured extremely close to an active volcano. The video was made on an Ambrym Island (Vanuatu), where a volcano with the same name is located. The pictures were captured using a GoPro drone.

Film director, Sam Cossman, piloted the drone over a 12-kilometer-wide caldera and was able to capture hundreds of photos that were used to build a 3D model of the volcano’s crater. Cossman says that with the help of drones explorers can see the most hard-to-reach and dangerous places on the planet.
