Our Long Volcanic Nightmare is Over (Probably, Maybe)

Posted By on Mon, May 24, 2010 at 8:33 AM

So, is it dormant? IS IT? Icelandic scientists are now suggesting that mean old Eyjafjallajökull may soon be done interrupting all of your transatlantic adventures. Not only has the temperature dropped down to a measly 100C, but get this: IT'S NOT EVEN PRODUCING MAGMA ANYMORE. Yup, just steam now, like your garden-variety tea kettle. But I'll leave the real taunts to the awesomely sobriquet'ed vulcanologist Magnus Gudmundsson: "What I can confirm is that the activity of the crater has stopped. No magma is coming up."

Oh snap!
