Sebastian "Basti" Hofmann dreams of flying from an active volcano to raise awareness for more necessary volcano research in remote locations. Picture taken at the Yasur Volcano in Vanuatu, South Pacific. It is said that the Yasur is active since over 800 years and many communities live at its foot, yet little research is done because of the lack of funds.
