Bizarre Lava-Covered Planet's Air Could Support Life

  Bizarre Lava-Covered Planet's Air Could Support Life But don't book your tickets yet—this place is definitely too hot to handle.That distant planet, known as 55 Cancri e, has been entrancing scientists since they first spotted it in 2004. It's skewed with respect to its star, its core may be basically a giant diamond, and its surface is covered in lava. It's pretty hard to turn away from a combination like that.

A CAMERA has captured the moment it was completely swallowed by molten lava and has miraculously come out still working.

A camera lost in volcanic lava managed to survive and capture the whole thing on video. Erik Storm, a tour guide for Kiluaea EcoGuides, lost his GoPro camera inside a small crevice in Hawaii about 16 months ago when the footage was captured. 

Storm put the camera inside the crevice to record video of the lava flow but forgot about it, he told PetaPixel. The GoPro was swallowed by the lava, but Storm was able to hammer it out once the lava cooled and hardened into rock. 

Essential’s camera accessory now supports Facebook Live streaming in 360 degrees

  Essential’s camera accessory now supports Facebook Live streaming in 360 degrees The Essential Phone shipped earlier this year with an optional 360-degree camera accessory, but it didn’t really do more than take 4K spherical videos and photos. To stream in 360 degrees on Facebook, you’ll need to go live from within the 360 Degree app, then log on to Facebook to start the stream. The camera is capable of supporting spatial audio, which means viewers can turn in various angles to hear more (or less) of a certain sound coming from a different direction. It can also support streaming in either 4K or 2K, which users can select before going live.

A hardy little GoPro camera has caught an amazing, one-of-a-kind video of molten lava approaching and engulfing it. Despite being seared in liquid rock, the gadget refused to turn off and shared its images with its forgetful owner. Take a look.

However, despite being consumed by lava and even bursting into flames – the camera survived and went on filming. This epic view of melting lava was captured by Erik Storm, the While he was telling the story to the visitors, the camera was completely swallowed by lava and burst into flames.

“I was telling a story when the molten lava completely engulfed by GoPro and it caught on fire,” he told PetaPixel. “I used a geology rock hammer to pull it out of the lava and thought it was a total loss.”

Needless to say, Storm was surprised when he realized the SD card survived to capture the footage. The camera yielded intense video of the lava flowing toward the lens before bursting into flames. 

Lava ranges in temperature from 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit to more than 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit, according to Oregon State University. Images of the GoPro from after the encounter showed a seared and blistered camera. 

“The camera even still worked although not as well as it did before,” said Storm. “Truly amazing it survived.”
