Sam Cossman



Explorer and filmmaker Sam Cossman recently documented his descent into Marum Crater, one of the world’s most active volcanoes. It’s a place so inaccessible that fewer have visited it than the surface of the moon. In addition to conducting scientific research to better understand how life can form in extreme environments on our planet and beyond, his mission was to capture rare videographic footage of this spectacular place.

Sam has always had a taste for adventure, but after leading an expedition to one of the most dangerous places on the planet, he decided to quit his job and dedicate his life to exploration. Sam is re-defining exploration by leveraging technology and innovative products to go places previously too dangerous for humans. As Sam explores the world’s most extraordinary places, he shares his experiences through the latest technology, from wearable tech emotion sensors to flying drones to 360-degree cameras, bringing all of us along with him for each heart-pounding, exhilarating cliff climb and volcano dive. He hopes that his adventures inspire others to believe that they too can accomplish the extraordinary.
