Sotra is more than 3,000 feet tall and once spewed molten ice from deep beneath the moon’s surface. That’s right, there is a thing called “molten ice.” The term has been used for ice on earth. However, ice is a bit different on other planets.
Ice volcano’s are technically called cryovolcanos — the scientific term for an ice volcano. This is not the first such cryovolcano found by scientists. Often these amazing volcanos emit water mixed with ammonia that melts at -95°C. This creates a liquid that can flow — molten ice. I love this stuff . . .
Below is a great NASA video on the ice volcano:
