Drones Sacrificed for Spectacular Volcano Video | National Geographic

Video technology and science converge on an active volcano in Vanuatu, where explorer Sam Cossman operated camera-mounted drones to capture high-definition images of the spectacular yet dangerous Marum Crater. Cossman and his team piloted the drones over the 7.5-mile-wide (12-kilometer) caldera while confronting toxic gases and boiling lava. Although two drones succumbed to the harsh environment, the team was able to bring back video and photos that will help scientists learn more about the volcano and the life around it.

    Of course they wouldn’t gonna sacrifice that drone, cos they forgot to wear their robes and one of them forgot to bring the18inches knife

    I’ve always wondered why we don’t take advantage of the volcanoes..like drop all of our garbage in there …it might seem stupid but makes sense..sorts lol

  3. Hooverdarnit on February 23, 2021 at 11:26 pm

    I took my magma submarine into the volcano and looked for the drones but couldn’t find them.

    Clickbait. "No drones were sacrificed in the making of this video."

  7. Valerie VE on February 23, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    It would be nice to watch a long asmr video of the lava bubbling

  8. Nate Dawg on February 23, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    When i see sacrifice drone…drone must be dead or fall in to volcano

    I dislike video for wrong title

  10. Bruce Bruce on February 23, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    I was incredibly disappointed, I was wanting to video of the drones falling into the lava, the drone’s view of being "sacrificed"

  11. Pulling The strings on February 23, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    Now why was this not on "1000 ways to die" 🤔

  12. Ali Abdelsalam on February 23, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    والله قدير

  13. EnzymeDom on February 23, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    A good hosepipe soon fix that 🤣

  14. kiffest on February 23, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    Going into pristine nature and littering with your plastic drones, horrible.

  15. Thina A.M. on February 23, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    FEAR OF FALLING AND HEIGHTS ACTIVATED 😮😱😱😱

  16. David Hynes on February 23, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    These guys get to close to the edge when it can give away at any moment gives me the woollies.

    When ppl trying their best joke but no one likes their comments and they check notifications.

  21. Ajit Khanal on February 23, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    Akainu!!

  22. Ahmad Zulfadly on February 23, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    That’s beating heart of Earth!

  23. Daniel EBR Parish on February 23, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    I don’t see the advantage to standing on the edge of a volcano without a safety harness attached to an anchor line. I guess that mountain climbing is a lot more dangerous than volcano climbing or that mountain climbers are a lot smarter.

    Crossman is an…. an explorer!

    [LYRICS]
    I think my brain is rotting in places
    I think my heart is ready to die
    I think my body is falling in pieces
    I think my blood is passing me by
    Honey, what’d you take, what’d you take?
    Honey, look at me
    Tell me what you took, what’d you take?
    I think my fate is losing it’s patience
    I think the ground is pulling me down
    I think my life is losing momentum
    I think my ways are wearing me down
    But if I gave up on being pretty, I wouldn’t know how to be alive
    I should move to a brand new city and teach myself how to die
    Honey, what’d you take, what’d you take?
    Honey, look at me
    Tell me what you took, what’d you take?
    Honey, what’d you take, what’d you take?
    Honey, look at me
    Tell me what you took, what’d you take?

  35. Pulling The strings on February 24, 2021 at 12:02 am

    All the people asking about the drones😂 her did say he lost them due to extreme conditions

  36. Muhammad Mirsab on February 24, 2021 at 12:03 am

    I don’t know about you guys but I would have a real hard time trusting people around me that they won’t push me or scare me like they’re pushing.

  37. Blackcherry on February 24, 2021 at 12:04 am

    Lava is cool to look at but boring to listen through lectures about lol

  38. Ali Abdelsalam on February 24, 2021 at 12:05 am

    وَهُمْ يَصْطَرِخُونَ فِيهَا رَبَّنَا أَخْرِجْنَا نَعْمَلْ صَالِحًا غَيْرَ الَّذِي كُنَّا نَعْمَلُ ۚ

  39. SUSHOBHAN BHATTACHARYA on February 24, 2021 at 12:06 am

  40. Sidd Guru on February 24, 2021 at 12:07 am

  46. Kelsey M. on February 24, 2021 at 12:11 am

    Where’s the sacrificed drone? I expected y’all to throw a drone in a volcano.

  47. Nabeel Khan on February 24, 2021 at 12:12 am

    Accept Jesus as your Lord and savior to aviod going in a place hotter than this…

  48. 1986 dpm on February 24, 2021 at 12:14 am

    very good job for the images taken but a sacrifice means you give something away and cannot have it back…

  49. Yusra Hassan on February 24, 2021 at 12:15 am

    Who cares? they can just buy a new drone

  50. robby lebotha on February 24, 2021 at 12:17 am

    So did sacrificing the drones appease the volcano gods or not? This video is incomplete
