Volcano

Flames bursts from a volcano on Sarn. (TV: Planet of Fire)

A volcano was an opening in a planet's surface, usually mountainous, which allowed hot lava, ash and gases to escape from below the surface. The word was coined by Pompeiian Lobus Caecilius on witnessing Vesuvius' eruption in 79. He believed that the "great god Vulcan must [have been] so enraged" and described the eruption as "so volcanic" and that it was "like some sort of volcano". (TV: The Fires of Pompeii)

Volcanoes on Earth Edit
