Scientists: Supervolcano underlying Yellowstone NP may be losing potency

The volcano below Yellowstone National Park is among the largest on the planet and has a history of generating huge eruptions. There have long been fears — many exaggerated — that it is only a matter of time before it blows, taking much of North America with it.

But new research, published this month in the journal Geology, suggests that this volcanic menace may be losing its strength, and that you can be a bit less alarmed the next time you read a viral headline about that supervolcano out west.
