Anyone who saw the movie The Core all the way back in 2003 probably already knows everything about the inside of the planet already.
Researchers at ETH Zurich have demonstrated in the lab how well a mineral common at the boundary between the Earth’s core and mantle conducts heat. This leads them to suspect that the Earth’s heat may dissipate sooner than previously thought.
The evolution of the planet Earth can be described as the history of cooling over the past 4.5 billion years. The surface of the Earth was covered with a deep ocean of magma.
Somewhere in central Panama, there is an almost unearthly phenomenon of an opening going deep into the mantle. By Elizabeth RayneOriginal article Earth isn’t going to open up its gaping maw, dragonlike, and swallow us all into the inferno anytime soon, but it is exhaling hot breath somewhere under Panama. This obviously sounds like either …
Someone's bound to hack the atmosphere to cool the planet. So we urgently need more research on the consequences, says climate scientist Kate Ricke.
The core isn't a "boring blob of iron" after all. Earth's "solid" inner core might actually be a bit mushy, researchers now find.
Research by new Ph.D. finds warping of planet’s crust, with far-reaching effects.
Two intriguing signals spotted in a small gravitational-wave detector could represent all kinds of exotic phenomena — from new physics to dark matter interacting with black holes to vibrations from near the beginning of the universe.
The core is losing heat faster under Indonesia than it is under Brazil, and that's messing with the seismic waves passing through it.
New research has uncovered a flaw in our understanding of the core — specifically, about the manner in which heat energy flows from the core and through the overlying mantle.
