Mt. St. Helens: Back From the Dead
The colossal eruption of Mt. St. Helens in 1980 blasted away an entire mountainside. Now, a new cycle of eruptions have begun blasting steam and ash thousands of feet into the air. In "Mt. St. Helens: Back From the Dead," NOVA ventures deep inside the volcano to determine when another massive eruption might occur.
