This episode tells the story of a plume of molten rock from the center of the earth that punched through the bottom of the Pacific Ocean and created the Hawaiian Islands -- amazingly quickly, geologically speaking. Even more amazing is the speed with which life has taken over the blistering, barren rock, turning it into a unique tropical paradise.
