Super Volcano on brink of eruption scientists warn

The active volcano is responsible for one of the deadliest eruptions in human history and experts believe history is about to repeat itself.

The deadly North Korean super volcano, Mount Paektu, is set to erupt and cause a global catastrophe, the likes of which would not have been seen for a thousand years.

The 9,000 feet giant volcano located on the border between North Korea and China is the highest peak of the Korean Peninsula. Mount Paektu is not far from a North Korean nuclear test facility where the government is conducting nuclear bomb test.

Now, new studies show that the eruption could eject far more sulphur into the atmosphere than previously thought, which could devastate life on Earth.

Mount Paektu once underwent one of the most devastating eruptions in history in 946AD when it erupted so powerfully that it formed a five kilometre caldera at its summit and produced enough ash that it even showered Japan - almost 1,100 km away.
