    Volcanic Ash - To Fly or Not to Fly?

    To fly through volcanic ash or not? - Science - Canoe.ca

    To fly, or not? Thereís no right answer about when itís safe to fly through a cloud of volcanic ash. But itíll be all too obvious if thereís a wrong answer, experts say.
    With the volcano in Iceland, Mother Nature is giving high-flying Europe a lesson in risk, aviation technology, scientific uncertainty and economics.
    And how these fields intersect is messy.

    Comments?
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.


    True love is wanting to give to another person without any thought about
    whoís getting the better of the deal.

    Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie's man's only promise

    I think that those that fly now are risking their lives. Hope no one sues the first airline that crashes.
