Explosions in the Sky with Pete Idstein

Taking advantage of gorgeous late March weather, Earth and Environmental Sciences Academic Lab Coordinator Pete Idstein, held some outdoor volcano demonstrations for his students. For four days crowds gathered behind Scovell Hall as Idstein concocted the proper amounts of materials to pull off the eruptions in impressive fashion. Check out these simulated volcanic explosions that reached nearly three stories high! Photos by: Dana Rogers
