They delved too greedily and too deep!
Gahhh! Icelandic geothermal energy station hits magma, then adds it to the generating process. HUBRIS! Have they already forgotten the lesson of Khazad Dum?
In 2009, a borehole drilled at Krafla, northeast Iceland, as part of the Icelandic Deep Drilling Project (IDDP), unexpectedly penetrated into magma (molten rock) at only 2100 meters depth, with a temperature of 900-1000 C. The borehole, IDDP-1, was the first in a series of wells being drilled by the IDDP in Iceland in the search for high-temperature geothermal resources.
