ALIEN PLANET

Danakil Depression, an incredible place that has one of the most extreme climates and is one of the lowest points on the planet at over 125 meters below sea level and sits at the junction between three tectonic plates, in a volcanic area in north-west Ethiopia. In this violent landscape the temperature regularly reaches 45°C (113°F). It rarely rains and the molten magma seas ooze just below the surface of the crust. The area is also characterized by toxic vapors of sulfur and chlorine following natural degassing volcanic processes.
