Five worlds in the Solar System have active volcanoes (those that are currently erupting or have erupted in human history): Earth, Jupiter’s moons Io and Europa, Neptune’s moon Triton, and Saturn’s moon Enceladus. But there are some other worlds that show signs of ancient (and not so ancient) activity. Let’s explore these explosive spots in the solar system.

Where the lava flows

A volcano is a hole in a planet or moon where hotter material from the inside erupts onto the surface or into the air. On Earth, there are hundreds to thousands of active and potentially active volcanoes. On the Big Island of Hawaii is Mauna Loa, the largest active volcano on Earth. It is 5.5 miles (9 km) high, but more than half of it is underwater. Yellowstone National Park in the United States is located over an extremely volcanic area. Three eruptions in the distant past created a crater 30 by 45 miles (48 by 72 km). Beneath the Pacific Ocean lies the Tamu Massif, a volcano so large it would cover the entire state of New Mexico.
