VP8/SS-005 has persistent lava lake

Apparently not only is this one very remote (South Sandwich Islands) and very steep, but:

the peak is surrounded by a huge snow-mushroom, extremely soft snow with an icing sugar like consistency, probably caused by the continual venting of steam by the volcano

So not much chance of an activation from this one! Never mind the broiling lake of lava. :scream:
