NOVA: Kilauea Hawaii on Fire
In May 2018, Klauea volcano erupted, obliterating neighborhoods with devastating force and uprooting thousands of local residents. It is Hawaiis most destructive volcanic eruption in generations. How can one of the most beautiful places on Earth suddenly transform into a roaring inferno, sputtering molten lava and bombs of volcanic rock the size of refrigerators? On the ground in the early days of the eruption, NOVA joins scientists and residents alike on a breathtaking journey to investigate Kilaueas recent spike in activity. Along the way, some of Hawaiis biggest secrets are revealed: Why did these geologically distinctive volcanoes form in the middle of the Pacific? How did life establish itself on the remote islands? What does this tell us about the future of Hawaii? And what dangers yet lurk for the inhabitants of the island paradise?
