The images even show off the (now dried) circular flow of lava at the base of the falls, where the molten rock fanned outward on the crater’s floor, NASA said.

JustMaths Conference 2017

I love the summer term for CPD – I’ve been to two conferences in four days!

I’m very grateful to the JustMaths team for inviting me along to their first annual conference.
