Description

The 1993 eruption of Colombia's Galeras killed six scientists and three tourists instantly as desk-sized rocks bombarded the slopes of the volcano at bullet speed. Two books examine the disaster and the issue of whether the scientists failed to notice signs of an imminent eruption. Read about the volcanic eruption in this National Geographic News article.
