Sarychev Peak Eruption, Kuril Islands A fortuitous orbit of the International Space Station allowed the astronauts this striking view of Sarychev Volcano (Kuril Islands, northeast of Japan) in an early stage of eruption on June 12, 2009. Sarychev Peak is one of the most active volcanoes in the Kuril Island chain, and it is located on the northwestern end of Matua Island. Prior to June 12, the last explosive eruption occurred in 1989, with eruptions in 1986, 1976, 1954, and 1946 also producing lava flows. Ash from the multi-day eruption has been detected 2,407 kilometers east-southeast and 926 kilometers west-northwest of the volcano, and commercial airline flights are being diverted away from the region to minimize the danger of engine failures from ash intake. This detailed astronaut photograph is exciting to volcanologists because it captures several phenomena that occur during the earliest stages of an explosive volcanic eruption. The main column is one of a series of plumes that rose above Matua Island on June 12.

Here’s the perfect U.S. road trip Randy Olson, a fourth-year graduate research assistant at Michigan State University, previously used a genetic algorithm to figure out the fastest way to find Waldo. Now Olson is back and he's using that same algorithm to map out the perfect U.S. road trip. Actually he created two perfect road trips, with help from Tracy Staedter. The first trip hits 50 major national landmarks, historical sites, parks, and monuments. Drivers get to travel across all 48 contiguous states, covering 13,699 miles in a bare minimum of 9.33 days (although Olson recommends 2-3 months to really take it all in). Meanwhile, the second road trip focuses on hitting major cities in every state but North Dakota, Vermont, and West Virginia. [h/t The Bold Italic ]
