Atlantis Is About To Blow Up. Again.

The island of Santorini in Greece is under serious threat from a volcanic eruption
If you have ever studied Santorini or are interested in the Atlantis fable, Santorini is ground zero of interest because it is the site of a city called Akrotiri, blown up in 1650 BCE. Akrotiri was part of the Minoan civilization of Crete (Minoa is more famously known for the myth of the minotaur.)
What is Santorini? Well, if you've ever seen an advertisement for tourism in the Aegean or a model standing in front of the deepest blue water with white houses on a cliffside draped behind her, that's Santorini, most likely.
