NASA’S Risky Plan To Save US From Yellowstone Supervolcano

By Mac Slavo

Government officials have been closely monitoring the activity in the Yellowstone caldera.  However, scientists at NASA have now come up with an incredibly risky plan to save the United States from the supervolcano.

A NASA scientist has spoken out about the true threat of super volcanoes and the risky methods that could be used to prevent a devastating eruption. Lying beneath the tranquil and beautiful settings of Yellowstone National Park in the US lies an enormous magma chamber, called a caldera. It’s responsible for the geysers and hot springs that define the area, but for scientists at NASA, it’s also one of the greatest natural threats to human civilization as we know it.

Brian Wilcox, a former member of the NASA Advisory Council on Planetary Defense, shared a report on the natural hazard that hadn’t been seen outside of the agency until now. Following an article published by BBC about super volcanoes last month, a group of NASA researchers got in touch with the media to share a report previously unseen outside the space agency about the threat Yellowstone poses, and what they hypothesize could possibly be done about it.

“I was a member of the NASA Advisory Council on Planetary Defense which studied ways for NASA to defend the planet from asteroids and comets,” explains Brian Wilcox of Nasa’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) at the California Institute of Technology. “I came to the conclusion during that study that the supervolcano threat is substantially greater than the asteroid or comet threat.”

Yellowstone currently leaks about 60 to 70 percent of its heat into the atmosphere through stream water which seeps into the magma chamber through cracks, while the rest of the heat builds up as magma and dissolves into volatile gasses. The heat and pressure will reach the threshold, meaning an explosion is inevitable. When NASA scientists considered the fact that a supervolcano’s eruption would plunge the earth into a volcanic winter, destroying most sources of food, starvation would then become a real possibility.  Food reserves would only last about 74 days, according to the UN, after an eruption of a supervolcano, like that under Yellowstone.  And they have devised a risky plan that could end up blowing up in their faces.  Literally.

Wilcox hypothesized that if enough heat was removed, and the temperature of the supervolcano dropped, it would never erupt. But he wants to see a 35% decrease in temperature, and how to achieve that is incredibly risky. One possibility is to simply increase the amount of water in the supervolcano. As it turns to steam, the water would release the heat into the atmosphere, making global warming alarmists tremble.

“Building a big aqueduct uphill into a mountainous region would be both costly and difficult, and people don’t want their water spent that way,” Wilcox says. “People are desperate for water all over the world and so a major infrastructure project, where the only way the water is used is to cool down a supervolcano, would be very controversial.”

So, NASA came up with an alternative plan. They believe the most viable solution could be to drill up to 10km down into the supervolcano and pump down water at high pressure. The circulating water would return at a temperature of around 350C (662F), thus slowly day by day extracting heat from the volcano. And while such a project would come at an estimated cost of around $3.46 billion, it comes with an enticing catch which could convince politicians (taxpayers) to make the investment.

“Yellowstone currently leaks around 6GW in heat,” Wilcox says. “Through drilling in this way, it could be used to create a geothermal plant, which generates electric power at extremely competitive prices of around $0.10/kWh. You would have to give the geothermal companies incentives to drill somewhat deeper and use hotter water than they usually would, but you would pay back your initial investment, and get electricity which can power the surrounding area for a period of potentially tens of thousands of years. And the long-term benefit is that you prevent a future supervolcano eruption which would devastate humanity.”

Of course, drilling into a supervolcano comes with its own risks, like the eruption that scientists are desperate to prevent. Triggering an eruption by drilling would be disastrous.

“The most important thing with this is to do no harm,” Wilcox says. “If you drill into the top of the magma chamber and try and cool it from there, this would be very risky. This could make the cap over the magma chamber more brittle and prone to fracture. And you might trigger the release of harmful volatile gases in the magma at the top of the chamber which would otherwise not be released.”

The cooling of Yellowstone in this manner would also take tens of thousands of years, but it is a plan that scientists at NASA are considering for every supervolcano on earth.

  1. I love explosions. What an independence celebration that would be.

  2. So…essentially, they want to Frack the super volcano?
    What could go wrong?

    Mother Nature is Not going to be outsmarted by a bunch of ” college Boys” that work for a self-serving government agency like Nasa or any other of the 100s of S S agencies. But if you must try — get the money from the other S S agency – the Pentagon. They have sooo much – they lose 10 to 50% just for the hell of it –

    • Ahh, I see you’ve HEARD of dual citizen “Dov” Zakheim, eh? Whom, but a blood member of the synagogue could “oops” over 2 trillion, then be saved from exposure by a missile that looks like a jetliner, leaves no bodies, drills a neat hole through the pentagram – THEN ,moves on to his NEXT “appointed” job in Sewer Nation – Gee, all that from the “picked on”.
      When’s we Goim’s turn to play the bogus “victim” card?

        “When’s we Goim’s turn to play the bogus “victim” card?”

        Oh look out now. Here comes a Knowledge Lecture and some Wisdom Instruction. Strong Meat; please chew well before swallowing.

        To wit, for starts: Please do NOT “play” THAT “card”, Beloved! Its use degrades the human spirit and ensnares the human soul in a web of lies that has but one purpose: to drag the practitioner directly down to Sheol – the Burning Pit – iow hell.

        That is really not what anyone in (or seeking to RE/GAIN) their right mind and standing in this world really wants, now is it?

        Instead: GO CREATIVE and WIN the Good Fight day after ever-livin’ day. Take up with a safe and non-toxic, non-degrading entheogen such as C. Sativa or similar if called-for and indeed possible – only stay AWAY from the numb-you-downs and dumb-you-downs of the Plant World. (Forget corporate-manufactured pharma entirely for this purpose.)

        Once well-inhaled (or not, depending), but nonetheless comfortable in your elevated state of consciousness, Yours Truly suggests to pray thus, if new to the Practice: “Creator! Kind Holy Creator! Creator! True Helpful Creator! Creator! Sweet Loving Creator! Creator! Trustworthy Creator!…”

        And so forth, rhythmically and clearly listing-out all the attributes of your Creator that somewhere, Deep Down Inside where the Dastardly Ones likely FORBADE you to access from birth (thus denying you your Eternal Birthright), you ALWAYS KNEW.

        Trust. TRUST is KEY.

        Do not fear. Sativa or NO Sativa, Just GO. You SHALL Make Contact. Have a simple, honest conversation with that one-and-only One True One! And once concluded, BRING IT BACK ALIVE and ACTUALIZE IT ON YOUR OWN GOOD HEAVEN-SENT AUTHORITY.

        Tech note: THIS is called “Actualizing the Mind of Christ”. It is also known in some circles as “The Knowledge and Conversation of thine Holy Guardian Angel”. BOTH concepts are true, valid and far from any purported mutual contradiction. Don’t worry about it. Just DO It.

        In one hyphenated word: SELF-ACTUALIZE. And TRULY LIVE.

        Live like THAT, faithfully and regularly (you choose the interval; many prefer nightly but ymmv and that is not a problem) engaging in TRUE PRAYER from your Inner Heart for a mere year and a day. THEN see where you are “at” and how things are working. Works better than ANY Churchianity-approved modus, let alone any “Magic Charm” – be it patented, copyrighted or otherwise.

        Because, like the Famous Spaghetti Sauce of note and record (“Prego”® iirc), “It’s IN there.” Always WAS. So BRING IT ALL OUT like NEVER BEFORE. And let the evil-mindeds ihn your vicinity just shriek and shake their fists in their frustration while YOU WIN. That shrieking will be MUSIC to your Inner Ear. (You’ll see…) 😉

        Just get clean and STAY clean – on the Inside, where it COUNTS. TRUST HEAVEN for all that is necessary and seems outside your immediate grasp. Keep the Faith.

        Fact: You are NOBODY’s DOG and certainly NOBODY’S COW. (“Goyim” in Yiddish is “cattle” in English. “Goy” is singular. “Goyische” is “cowlike”. Geddit now, Beloved?)

        Always do the Right Thing. If it comes to pass that you have in fact somehow done the Wrong Thing, do not duck away or “false out”. Go Creative and make it RIGHT instead – then walk on, free as you ever were under Heaven. And watch what “Happens”! (Many have found that the Most Powerful Word of Power under Heaven is simply, “OOPS!”) 😉

        You shall be GLAD. Victim schmictim, Bubbilah! We “Deplorables”™ are FAR BETTER than THAT.

        Take it from an Old Gnostic Eclectic Injun Jew who has integrated an awful lot of this field of Forbidden Human Development over a lifetime spent in the above-mentioned Good Fight on US soil. And learned to WIN.

        After all, it’s merely Free Advice; receiving said advice has cost you NOTHING. And that is all. 0{;-)o[

        And a very shrewd post you have Paschn. Yes, the cover up after cover up after cover up is getting old but the sheeple aren’t that smart anymore. Funny how the ancestors of the Blacks today in America were sold by the same ancestors that today run the News Media and the USG. But “know” one picks up on it either. But Business is Business and there are only rules for – Suckers.

  4. The yellowstone supervolcano could erupt within 100 years. A project that takes thousands of years seems like a nonstarter. I say we get off this planet before it kills us.

    • Not yet ! This planet has not quite been killed by (?) humans. There´s more to kill.

      • Killed by humans? You don’t get it, do you? Humans have such a damn superiority complex that they think they can kill this planet so easily. One supervolcanic eruption is far more destructive than anything humans have been able to create.

        • Theoretically, yes. However, humans are killing the planet slowly, without the assistance of a super-volcanic eruption.
          Also, the “super-volcanic eruption” is a theory.

          • Again, a super-volcanic eruption is far more devastating to the planet than anything we have done.

            > Also, the “super-volcanic eruption” is a theory.

            So is climate change.

  5. Go for it. That is cheap relative to any military project.

  6. You guys should ask Steven Spielberg and George Lucas for advice… Don’t ask Bill Gates, he would only suggest injecting vaccine into the magma chamber which will most likely make the hot mama vomit. One other thing though, does Kim Jong-Un know where Yellowstone is? lol, this is hilarious!

  7. NASA? The GANG that can NOT go to low earth orbit? Now these do nothing eaters want to do GEO THERMAL INSANE they WILL SCREW UP like Challenger.

    HIRE the PROFESSIONALS in ICELAND and do SOMETHING RIGHT for a REFRESHING CHANGE!

    the USA could really USE a WIN these SAD days! Maybe SOMETHING to CHEER about!

    • Almost all severe volcanic eruptions in the past were the result of steam explosions, now these idiots want to do it in a “controlled” manner.
      The only thing that needs to be done is to DRAIN THE FUCKING LAKE!
      These assholes are going to kill all of us!

    • Sorry, that would violate the Not Invented Here rule.

  8. $$$BOONDOGGLE$$$

    Ok, Let’s Pretend it’s a Real Thing…

    5-15 Years of ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STUDIES Required by The EPA, followed by 5-25 YEARS of COURT BATTLES BY, name your Environmental Protection Do-Goode Factions…

    Followed by 2-10 YEARS of THEORETICAL BIDDING on The Project.

    Maybe The Digging MIGHT START IN 2102… The Projet will NEVER BE COMPLETED due to COST OVERRUNS and ENVIRO-WACK PROTESTS….

    By Then…. POOF! NEW VOLCANO!!!

  9. NASA, since Apollo, is nothing more than another corrupt bloated bureaucracy occupied by people that couldn’t get a job in the private sector. Really confident that people that didn’t check the optics on a telescope and can’t make an o-ring seal are going to save us from a super-volcano.

  10. How would drilling equipment survive the high heat of drilling down?

  11. My god…if I hadn’t seen the height of hubris before, I’ve certainly seen it now. Is NASA that desperate for relevance?

  12. Is Al Gore associated with NASA? The plan sounds about as effective as Gore´s solution to one element of a pollution problem that exists only in the fairy tale created by Gore and accomplices. The world is
    running on fairy tales, such as the on-paper money system of the “U.S. Federal Reserve Bank,” that hauls in trillions in profit for the Jewish families that own the fraudulent money system. One wonders who is scheduled to receive the profits that are planned to be generated by NASA´s plan; the families that own the “Federal Reserve”?

    How much of the geographic United States will remain for the “Yellowstone Supervolcano” to destroy- once it gets around to erupting – is a valid question. Hopefully, no NASA or USGov “scientist think tank” will drop a nuke into the magma just to see what will happen. Hopefully, “US scientists”
    learned from a similar experiment in Haiti a couple years ago. From which, Haitians have not recovered, as the billions in donations were seized by the (Bush) Clinton Foundation instead of Haitian organizations.

  13. NASA is a government entity, Do you think that something could go wrong, Absolutely

  14. At least it is not the same government agency that “fixed” that old gold mine out west

  15. The plan sounds about as effective as Al Gore´s boon-doggle with one element of a pollution problem that exists only in the fairy tale created by Gore and accomplices. The world is running on fairy tales, such as the on-paper money system of the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank. Which, has hauled in trillions in profit for the private owners of the fraudulent money system. One wonders who will acquire the profits that are planned to be generated by NASA´s plan; the same private owners of the “Federal Reserve”?

    How much of the geographic US will remain for the “Yellowstone Supervolcano” to destroy- once it gets around to erupting – is a valid question. Hopefully, NASA or USGov “think tanks” will drop a nuke into the magma just to see what will happen. Maybe US “scientists” learned from a similar experiment in Haiti a couple years ago. From which Haitians have not recovered, as the donated billions were seized by the Clinton Foundation and not released to Haitian organizations.

  16. but Yellowstone erupting will solve world overpopulation problems.

  17. The Red Schild’s madness for profit…maybe their last scheme.
