Space Volcanoes, an AMNH Shelf Life 360 video

Watch more with these video collections:

Here on Earth, volcanic eruptions are dramatic manifestations of our dynamic planet. Elsewhere in our solar system, awe-inspiring extraterrestrial volcanoes—both active and extinct—provide clues to planetary formation and hints of how life may have formed. Join us for a 360° virtual expedition to Mars’ massive shield volcano Olympus Mons, the violent surface of Jupiter’s moon Io, and the icy jets of Saturn’s moon Enceladus.

Travel through our solar system to learn about Space Volcanoes, including cryovolcanoes that erupt with cold gases and liquids. This Shelf Life video from the American Museum of Natural History explores some of the history, mythology, and science surrounding these relatively recent discoveries.
