In the final days of the space shuttle program, the U.S. military and the military contractors involved in the Apollo Program were given permission to explore and land on the Bali volcano.
The Bali-Erode volcano in the foothills of the Balu mountain range has erupted repeatedly, spewing ash, lava and rock in a region that is home to some of the world’s highest peaks.
The volcano is so dangerous that a U.N. agency is recommending the U and Russia both suspend their planned landings there, saying there is no scientific or technological reason to land on a volcano.
The Bali, located in the southern Indian Ocean, is a major tourist attraction and an important tourist destination in South Asia, which hosts some 3.5 million people, according to the U,N.
The U.K.-based company Orbital Sciences Corp. has developed a robotic arm to bring a small cargo to the volcano, where it will be sent to a research station at the University of Cambridge for testing.
The Balis lava dome, seen here on April 12, 2017 in Philly, Pennsylvania, is about 300 feet (91 meters) tall, and scientists say that it could be more than a mile (1.5 kilometers) wide.
It has been erupting for more than 30 years, causing more than $2 billion in damage to property and buildings in South Korea.
After the Balis eruption, U.C. Berkeley professor of earth, planetary and planetary sciences Stephen Moore said that the U had been asked to do something different.
“They were asking us to do some new things, so I said we need to do a mission, so we’re going to do it,” Moore said.
He said the U was then given permission by NASA and a contract to test land a small robotic arm on the volcano.NASA said that Orbital Sciences could use the robotic arm for its next mission.
“We’re going after an area of the volcano that we’ve never seen before,” Moore told The Associated Press.
“The BalI is an incredible place, and we need a new opportunity.”
Orbital Sciences is developing the robotic Arm to work on the Mount St. Helens research station.
The research station is located about 100 miles (160 kilometers) north of Mount St, and is the world home of Mount Vesuvius, the last eruption in the Roman Empire.
Moore said the BalI’s eruptions were a warning to all nations that were going to use space to explore.
“It was an invitation for the rest of the earth,” Moore added.
