The volcanologist Ludmilla Ossipenko lives in Petropawlowsk, the largest city of Kamchatka. Located here is the leading scientific volcano institute of Soviet times, for whose magazine Ludmilla is working. Together with a team of researchers, Ludmilla is now on a journey to look at the base of Kamchatka’s largest geyser, the Velikan, for the first time ever. With the help of a special camera, they intend to explore the operating mode of the subterranean steam boiler.
