Submission + - Southern hemisphere yellowstone sized caldera foun (yahoo.com)

dutchwhizzman writes: Uturuncu is a Bolivian supervolcano. Research suggests that it has an eruption frequency of roughly 300.000 years and the last eruption was, give or take a few years, 300.000 years ago. Research suggests that it started raising in a 70 km circumference by 1 to 2 centimeters per year, making it the fastest growing volcano on the planet.

Break out the tin foil hats, and store plenty of canned beans, because it may just erupt before Yellowstone pops it's cork.
