Lava overflowing caldera of Pu'u 'O'o, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Hawaii, USA

This volcano is one of the images featured in our LIFE symphony with music by Philip Glass which will be performed in Rome, Italy, on Tuesday April 17 as part of the National Geographic Science Festival. LIFE is a celebration of our living planet from the Big Bang to the present. The last movement will be streamed live via the internet around 9.45 PM Italy time.

If you live in Italy, you can also see an interview with Frans on diMartedì, on La7 channel Tuesday at 9:10 PM.
