    Synopsis of pic....
    This is a picture taken by astronauts aboard the International Space Station on June 12 (2009). This is the Sarychev Volcano in northeast Russia, north of Japan. It’s one of the most active volcanoes in the area. This is the 6th time the volcano has exploded since WWII. This is a very cloudy area and it’s unusual to be able to see down to the volcano. The clearing was likely caused by the volcano itself either from sinking motion around the plume or a “shockwave” from the eruption. The plume of ash/steam from the volcano has reached an altitude where the top is condensing into a white cloud.

    Properly taught, they're all cool subjects and they all connect... but, yes, science is incredibly cool.

    But without MY subject, the coolness just wouldn't exist, so math is cooler by definition :D

    As much as I hate to do it, I think I am going to concede this one to you. Now, I could argue that applying the math to things like geysers and volcanos is what makes math so cool, but, yeah, I'll concede this one, just this one. :)
