Volcanic Activity West of Munich

Flaming onion volcano, a challenge for experimentalists and a nice way to greet the new year.

Flaming onion volcano, a challenge for experimentalists and a nice way to greet the new year.

A big celebration on New Year’s eve is a tradition for most of you, I guess, and I am no exception here. For the last couple of years, I’ve been getting together with friends from university, most of them physicists. As usual, we had a scary amount of food, in all sorts of different varieties. On my suggestion, we also included Teppanyaki in our repertoire this year. And, not surprisingly, the “flaming onion volcano” was an irresistible challenge for the experimentalists among us… As usual, we did not do fireworks for the new year, no point in spending money on things that blow up if you can spend it on food and drink, but we greeted the new year in style, by discovering volcanic activity in the West of Munich.

Happy New Year to all of you!
