[You may need to refresh this page to get the video to load.] The video was the Grand Prize winner in the X Prize Foundation's video contest "Why Do You Explore?", and it won videographer Joe Capra a $10,000 National Geographic Expedition of his choosing. Wow. And Iceland! What a place! The chance to see something like this

, or an active volcano

(or another active volcano
