Caldera Yellowstone is called cold blooded as a super volcano because of its ability to wreak havoc globally. Located beneath Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho, the supervolcano is constantly monitored by the USGS (United States Geological Survey) for signs that supersthesia is occurring. An event of this kind has happened three times in history – 2.1 million years ago, 1.3 million years ago and 640,000 years ago, which leaves some claiming that the mass eruption is overdue.
Self-proclaimed experts reach this conclusion by calculating the time difference between each event.
However, Dr. Lowenstern erased such claims.
He told viewers of the USGS YouTube channel in 201
"Therefore, 40,000 years are overdue.
"But actually, if the average burst intervals are 2.1 million to 1.3 million, then another 640,000 years.
"If you average these numbers, you come up with something that is over 700,000 years old."
"So, in fact, even if you try to make that argument, it won't be overdue. for another 70,000 yen ars. "
Dr. Lowenstern went on to say that even this calculation was doubtful.
He added: "The other thing that is important to realize is that when they make statistics based on two burst intervals, they just play games.

Their website states: "First of all, no repetition intervals based on only two values could be statistically meaningless .
"But for those who insist, let us do arithmetic. The three eruptions occurred 2.1 million, 1.3 million and 0.64 million years ago.
Therefore, the two intervals are 0.8 and 0.66 million years, on average, to the interval of 0.73 million years.
"Again, the last eruption is 0.64 million years ago, which means we are still about 90,000 years from the time when we might consider calling Yellowstone too late for another caldera formation.
"Nevertheless, we cannot dismiss the possibility of another such eruption occurring sometime in the future, given the volcanic history of Yellowstone and the continued presence of magma beneath the Yellowstone caldera."
More recently, researchers have theorized what will be happens if the asteroid hits Yellowstone National Park.
YouTube's Biggest Life Matters told viewers: "It has to be an asteroid that Earth has not seen in millions of years to cause damage to Yellowstone." "
" If it hits Yellowstone, it will probably affect the volcano, probably cause a lava eruption and be a nightmare. “
