Tapping into geothermal energy is nothing new, but Iceland is taking things majorly next level by drilling nearly 3 miles down into a live volcano to tap boiling hot magma. The well is likely the hottest hole on the planet, reaching oozing magma that reaches 800 F. If the project - nicknamed Thor after the Norse god - is successful, it would mean clean energy for the country that is ten times more productive than conventional oil or gas wells.
