A Land Born in Fire

The volcanic eruptions that formed the islands of Hawaii are still active today. Kilauea, on the Big Island of Hawaii, ranks among the world's most active volcanoes and provides a dramatic display of volcanic power. The volcano’s newest cone, Pu`u `O`o regularly spews molten rock, and its steady flow of lava in the past two decades has added more than 500 acres to the island. In this video segment from Nature, follow geologists as they retrieve samples from a fresh batch of Kilauea's molten lava.
