That's a deep hole. Jimmy Hoffa could be down there for all we know.
At the risk of sounding stupid, the guy said at the end of the video that we had never dug down this deep before then continued to say how deep each section of earth is and how far it is to the core. I'm curious as to how we know that when this is the furthest we've ever been down before?? How can we have measured each section accurately or even know there aren't more or less? Is it just approximated from the measurements we have of the surface here?
It's early and maybe something isn't clicking in my brain yet making me miss something obvious, but I just can't grasp how we know without actually going deeper...
Not necessarily posted to you OP. Just thoughts on it. It's still pretty neat and I would like to see someone pick this up in the future when we have invented something that will make it feasible to go further.
