Bizarre Lava-Covered Planet's Air Could Support Life

  Bizarre Lava-Covered Planet's Air Could Support Life But don't book your tickets yet—this place is definitely too hot to handle.That distant planet, known as 55 Cancri e, has been entrancing scientists since they first spotted it in 2004. It's skewed with respect to its star, its core may be basically a giant diamond, and its surface is covered in lava. It's pretty hard to turn away from a combination like that.

A CAMERA has captured the moment it was completely swallowed by molten lava and has miraculously come out still working.

A camera lost in volcanic lava managed to survive and capture the whole thing on video. Erik Storm, a tour guide for Kiluaea EcoGuides, lost his GoPro camera inside a small crevice in Hawaii about 16 months ago when the footage was captured.

Storm put the camera inside the crevice to record video of the lava flow but forgot about it, he told PetaPixel. The GoPro was swallowed by the lava, but Storm was able to hammer it out once the lava cooled and hardened into rock.

“I was telling a story when the molten lava completely engulfed by GoPro and it caught on fire,” he told PetaPixel. “I used a geology rock hammer to pull it out of the lava and thought it was a total loss.”

Needless to say, Storm was surprised when he realized the SD card survived to capture the footage. The camera yielded intense video of the lava flowing toward the lens before bursting into flames.

Lava ranges in temperature from 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit to more than 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit, according to Oregon State University. Images of the GoPro from after the encounter showed a seared and blistered camera.

“The camera even still worked although not as well as it did before,” said Storm. “Truly amazing it survived.”
