What can we learn from magma?

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:27 pm on 7 October 2019

It sounds like a recipe for disaster - drilling into a magma chamber. But the process could unlock the mystery of volcanoes and tell scientists how magma operates. 

Associate Professor Ben Kennedy is an expert in Physical Volcanology at the University of Canterbury and has studied volcanoes all over the world. 

He's doing a free lecture on the subject, and why he's fascinated about it, this week and he tells us more.
