Last week, a long-dormant volcano erupted in Iceland, creating a 1 kilometer vent in the earth and spewing lava and steam. Now the continuing eruption has opened a massive, second fissure in the icy ground.

So far the eruption has not harmed anyone, and has become something of a tourist attraction. You can view images from a live webcam here, and apparently chefs are offering visitors to the site meals cooked over lava.

Close up, you can see the massive craters that are forming around the eruptions.
