Iceland’s Mystery Boulder

After the Eyjafjallajokull volcano in Iceland erupted earlier this year the heat generated was enough to melt surrounding glaciers, releasing the rocks and debris that now litter the valley. This gigantic rock is one of them.

Ash clouds from Eyjafjallajokull caused disruption for millions back in March and April this year, as over 100,000 flights were cancelled worldwide.

Despite standing more than 15 metres tall and weighing in at over 900 tonnes, this huge rock has stood in its current spot for a mere eight months. So how did it get there?
