Drones and incredible cameras made this spectacular video footage of an active volcano in Vanuatu possible. National Geographic shared the footage of explorer Sam Cossman and his team, who operated the DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ with GoPro cameras while capturing high-definition images of the amazing, yet deadly Marum Crater. The team piloted the drones over the 12-kilometer caldera while faced with toxic gases and boiling lava. Sadly two drones succumbed due to the intense temperatures, however the team was able to bring back video and thousands of photos that will help scientists learn more about the volcano and the life around it.
