This book tells you everything you need to know about a trip to the planet's core, with the proposed journey to be made using an ingenious Centre-Pod drilling vehicle. Starting with your first entry through the earth's mantle, at a boundary in the tectonic plates, you'll travel through the geological layers to reach the twin layers of the earth's core. Activities for your trip include exploring a volcano, hunting for diamonds under the cratons, discovering what it's like at the hypocenter of an earthquake, and riding up a mantle plume on your return journey. Also included are lists of "What Not To Miss At The Earth's Core," "Top Ten Favourite Excursions," and "The Centre of the Earth in Popular Culture."
