A Little Too Close

In a clip from the BBC TV show Richard Hammond's Journey to the Centre of the Planet, a scientist tries to get a really fresh sample of lava. Mount Nyiragongo volcano, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, contains a lake of lava in its caldera. When it starts to move, the lava can flow up to 60 miles an hour -faster than anyone can outrun it! Link
