Drones are helping scientists capture astonishing video footage of hazardous natural events. It is not easy to gather proof of physical phenomena like volcanic eruptions. Drones are small and fast enough to get close to all of the action without the likelihood of permanent damage or injury to people.
The volcano called Fagradalsfjall recently erupted in Iceland for the first time in 800 years. The footage gathered is rare and only possible with modern drone equipment. The drones also have live-streaming capabilities that allow people worldwide to witness everything in real-time.
Drones bring people closer to experiences that would otherwise not be possible. Drones enable people to become a part of unique natural wonders and learn more about the planet's beauty.
