NASA is studying how human beings will respond to the super volcanic eruption.

It is learned that NASA has been trying to study various possible countermeasures and how to deal with the eruption of super volcanoes. One option is to cool the volcano before it erupts, which is easier said than done. According to NASA, if 35% of Yellowstone's heat can be effectively transferred, the threat from it can be mitigated.

But it's obviously very difficult to do that, so scientists have come up with another plan, which is to inject water into the volcano. The water will be injected into a few miles of deep holes and then returned at very high temperatures to generate electricity. It is believed that this will help offset the investment of US $3 billion 460 million.

But it's almost impossible to persuade politicians to invest such a large sum of money, but the benefits of geothermal energy may ultimately be profitable or can influence public opinion.

Since studies have shown that Yellowstone's supervolcano may be recovering earlier than expected, it's a bad idea to look for a solution now.
