That area is Geologically stable. The whole concept of Magma is ludicrous. There are miles of Granite between that well and the Mohorovicic discontinuity and upper Mantle which is in a plastic state.
Does anyone here actually believe they would drill into a pool of Magma?

Actually, lava would be a GOOD THING.
It would essentially solidify once it reached the water and then it would stop the leak.

I was under the impression that the robot is sitting on the sea floor. Is that normal fluctuation?
