Is the Super Volcano Beneath Yellowstone Ready to Blow?

About four miles beneath Yellowstone National Park's beautiful scenery is a forty-mile-wide chamber full of molten rock under incredibly high pressure. This magma is what powers Yellowstone's fantastic geysers and hot springs, but is it about to erupt in a cataclysmic explosion that will decimate the western United States and push mankind to the brink of extinction?

The Yellowtone Volcano could erupt with 10,000 times the force of the explosion of Mount St. Helens in 1980.
