The News Minute | September 13, 2014 | 06:11 pm IST Seeking adventure is common to many in the world. But the kind of adventure one chooses differentiates them from the rest. There are those who go an extra step to get the thrill from some extreme form of adventure. Like 'diving' into an active volcano. A video uploaded by Sam Cossman on YouTube on September 4, shows him climbing into Marum Crater, which is said to be one of the most inaccessible and dangerous volcanoes in the world. Watch the video here: The caption to the video reads: 'Sam Cossman and George Kourounis with volcanic pioneers Geoff Mackely and Brad Ambrose become among the first explorers to step foot inside the worlds most dangerous and inaccessible volcano, Marum Crater. More people have visited the moon than the firey bottom of this spectacular and deadly location.' The YouTube video is titled Man Dives into an Exploding Volcano. What is surprising, after reading comments to the video, is that some were really expecting him to dive into the red hot molten lava. Now that is definitely over expecting! Test Tube, in an interview, asked Sam Cossman what was it like to be inside a volcano. "It was hot", pat came the reply from Cossman. The temperature around the volcano was so hot that even with all his protective gear he could get only about '20 meters away and stay for just a few seconds.'
