A World Without People
http://www.theatlantic.com/infocus/2012/03/a-world-without-people/100264/

For a number of reasons, natural and human, people have recently evacuated or otherwise abandoned a number of places around the world -- large and small, old and new. Gathering images of deserted areas into a single photo essay, one can get a sense of what the world might look like if humans were to vanish from the planet altogether. Collected here are recent scenes from nuclear-exclusion zones, blighted urban neighborhoods, towns where residents left to escape violence, unsold developments built during the real estate boom, ghost towns, and more.

reddit post of Io and a volcano on it's surface
Volcano in action, it's a monstrosity..
Yeah, it's crazy. Beautiful pic with Jupiter in the foreground. For a sense of scale, this is how big Io is in comparison to Earth;



From my off-hand estimate, it's basically a volcano eruption the size of something like the entire state of Texas.
