A huge earthquake in Bolivia has revealed extensive mountain ranges below the surface of the earth

Classical science fiction author Jules Verne once envisioned an entire subterranean landscape inside the planet, complete with lost prehistoric species and plant life. The book was aptly titled Journey to the Center of the Earth. We may not really find dinosaurs down there, but recent research shows features in the underworld that resemble structures on the surface. Far from a …

Could Volcanic Activity Enable Water Under Martian Ice?

If liquid water is actually present under the south polar ice cap of Mars, this must be due to volcanic activity a new study suggests. The researchers behind the new work argued that this was necessary to be an underground source of heat to melt ice under an ice cap – though they did not agree on whether the liquid …

Origin of Earth's H2O – "Billions of Tons of Water-Packed Asteroids"

Posted on Feb 14, 2019 "Our calculations indicate that coinciding with the so-called 'heavy bombardment' produced by the gravitational destabilization of the main asteroid belt, billions of tons of carbonaceous chondrites reached Earth about 3.8 billion years ago. Josep M. Trigo-Rodriguez at the Institute of Space Sciences. An international study led by researchers from the Institute of Space Sciences, from …

Massive Bolivian earthquake exposes mountains 660 kilometers below our feet

Sessisologist Jessica Irving, an Assistant Professor of Earth Sciences, is sitting with two meteorites from the Princeton University collection that contain iron, presumably from inside Planetsimals. Irving uses seismology to examine the interior of our own planet. Recently, he found mountain topography roughness at the 660km boundary at the base of the mantle's transitional zone.
