Watch a 200-mile-high volcano explosion on the surface of Io

Man, Jupiter's moons are a lot cooler than ours. The spacecraft New Horizons captured this gigantic exploding volcano on its moon Io, the most volcanically active body in the solar system. It seems crazy to see something so far away captured in such detail.


The explosion and its 200-mile-high plume happened back in 2007, but NASA just released photos and videos of it. If you've got a few minutes, watch this.
