Out of This World: Naturally Colored Volcanic Lakes

It may be a decade or two (or fifteen) before space flight become affordable for us everyday ordinary folks. However, before you cry yourself to sleep because you will never get the chance to visit the fourth planet in the Alpha Centauri system, you can at least give yourself some comfort: there are many places on this little blue drop in the universe to visit that are just as strange as anything you will come across in the final frontier. Louie Jerome takes us to one of these places.

From the article:
One of the best known geothermal centres in the southern hemisphere is Rotorua, near the town of the same name, on New Zealand's north island. This is really a fabulous place to visit and there is something very strange and eerie about it. You could almost believe that you were on another planet.
