It is true that there are countless theories that predict The end of humanity And now the colossal Yellowstone volcano, located in the United States, has been added to these; Fortunately, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) already has a plan to get it under control.
Although it sounds unrealistic or hard to believe, NASA confirms this; In the world, there are known to be about 20 supervolcanoes and they named it that because they have it Volcanic capacity 100 times larger than a normal volcano.
The supervolcano in question is one of the largest in the world, it is estimated that it was established 600,000 years ago and its last eruption dated back 175,000 years. That’s why specialists are concerned that the size of its geological structure and the time it has not erupted could mark the end of the planet.
Yellowstone Supervolcano: Its eruption would have left a crater as large as Mallorca
Discovered in 1870, it was formed about 640 thousand years ago and measures 55 x 72 km. To this day, it is one of the largest volcanic chambers on the planethttps://t.co/jnlRoUH7nG pic.twitter.com/FV3pfPCeSq

Giant Yellowstone Volcano
For some people, Yellowstone is the most dangerous volcano in the world, as it is located under Yellowstone National Park, between Wyoming, Idaho and Montana in the United States; In its last eruption, it is estimated that it expelled about a thousand cubic kilometers of rock and ash, giving rise to A. Volcanic caldera Width of 64 km.
It is precisely this magma reservoir that is responsible for the eruption of hot springs and hot springs that emit bubbles all the time in Yellowstone National Park.
NASA ranks this volcano as one of the greatest natural threats, because when it erupts it will unleash a volcanic winter, that is, an ash cloud that would disrupt the climate and prevent civilization from accessing natural resources and food, thus causing tolerance. The world is entering a global famine. In this sense, the United Nations estimated that the entire planet’s food reserves would last only 74 days.
happy Earth Day 2021 And the #NationalParkWeek!
Earth protection protects Yellowstone. Yellowstone is only a microcosm of Earth. But if its study teaches us anything, it is that everything is connected. What will you do to protect Yellowstone and the Earth? pic.twitter.com/Rdg9Dbh5z4

NASA is taking action against the supervolcano
To control and prevent this colossal volcano from erupting, NASA created a solution through which magma could be cooled by pouring water directly into the crater, and unfortunately, this large volcano would require millions of liters of this liquid, which makes it somewhat impossible, given that it is in different places. In the world, like Mexico, there is a file A shortage of water.
The other plan consists of creating a tunnel 10 kilometers deep on one side of the volcano to reach the magma and pump it at high pressure, with this procedure the temperature can be lowered a little every day; The only downside is that this will cost about $ 3.46 trillion.
