Drillers break into magma chamber

Hot stuff here. Anyone fancy a holiday in Hawaii?

Drillers looking for geothermal energy in Hawaii have dug a well right into a magma chamber. The magma specialist said it was like "chilled pancake syrup". They were surprised how hot it was and how close to the surface. Did nobody tell them about Hawaii's volcanoes?!! Nice video here too from the BBC. Link here.
