Iceland's "Thor" volcano power plant can generate 10X more energy than oil or gas wells

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.
