The PBS series "Nova" is beginning its 40th season tonight, and that is an incredibly impressive number. The show examines every aspect of science it possible can. Tonight the show airs an episode entitled 'Doomsday Volcanoes.' Much in the way people in California know that an earthquake is, eventually coming, we all must face the fact that eventually there will be a massive volcanic eruption. What are the ramificaitons of that event and what can we do to prepare? By examining the recent eruption in Iceland, the show hopes to further our understanding.
