The Kid Should See This

Swim down under Hawaiian waters with PBS Digital Studios’ UnderH2O team to watch how lava from the rumbling Kilauea crater bursts into the Pacific Ocean, and then quickly cools to form what’s called pillow lava.

Another underwater adventure in the archives: diving under a lake covered with Antarctic ice.
