Is it at all possible with the current technologies of today to make a machine to drill to the center of the earth?

With current technology,no. But when i had physics,i remember the prof saying that "theoretically" the way they got to the center in the movie" the core" is possible. But who know what tech we have that isnt released yet.

Not even close tech wise.
The pressure and heat is so intense you would need to make things out of something akin to diamond perhaps stronger. Like movies in "The core" mentioned already you would need a craft with a hull out of pure diamond to even work in theory. Your talking pressure that would pop those super deep submersibles like a bubble.
