Crazy Guy Stands Beside Raging Lava Flow in Homemade Suit

That's a volcano flow, in case you hadn't noticed, and that's a guy in a suit he and a couple of friends rigged up to help withstand the deadly temperatures of molten-hot rock. Geoff Mackley, Bradley Ambrose, Nathan Berg built the respirator and heat proximity suit themselves, but details are scarce (read: nonexistent) about how they put the thing together, or which one of them is standing at the brim of a lava lake in this video. Without it, a person can stand beside the lavafall of Manum in Vanuatu for about 6 seconds. With it, the team reportedly hung around for 40 minutes. Link -via Motherboard

The images of Marum are dramatic but by no means exceptional. French volcanologist Maurice Krafft shot an incredible video of the 1984 eruption of Mauna Loa in Hawaii. He was standing close to the huge flows and cascades of lava!
