Scientists have released new findings which point to the Earth having not one, but two cores – and it shows that basically everything we thought we knew about science can be disproven at any time.
Researchers have indicated that there is a second core sitting inside the inner core. According to them, the discovery could also lead us to understand more about how the Earth first became hospitable to life.
Scientists from The Australian National University have released new findings relating to the innermost inner core (IMIC) of Earth and they claim it has a radius of about 400 miles.
Thanh-Son Phạm and Hrvoje Tkalčić are the researchers behind the new project. They made the new discovery after analysing earthquakes that produced 'seismic waves reverberating through the entire planet'.
