Not to be dark and depressing, but a test was done to see if a person would float when jumping from a great height into lava. In normal circmstances, due to its high density, a person would generally be expected to remain on the surface of lava.
To perform the test, a bag of (mostly) organic rubbish was tossed into Erta Ale Volcanoes lava lake.
At first it seems like a good way to dispose of trash. The volcano eats up the bag no problem. But then it seems the great mountain is angered by our trash, and starts to seriously bubble. Oh, boy. They’ve gone and upset the volcano gods now.
