Japanese researchers have for the first time managed to re-create the pressure and temperature of Earth`s inner core. The team placed iron particles between two diamonds whose tips measured just 0.04 millimeters in diameter.
Pressure was applied through the diamonds and then the iron particles were heated using laser illumination. This created an atmospheric pressure 3.64 million times that found at sea level and a temperature of 5,500 C, the same conditions as the inner core.
