Interestingly, the iron inner core of the earth is said to be as hot as the surface of the sun, yet completely solid due to the pressure of the weight of everything above it even though it is way beyond melting temperature. The outer core however flows more like a liquid, the rotation of which contributes to the invisible yet valuable magnetic field that extends beyond the earth a lot further than the atmosphere does, as well as providing energy for a whole bunch of other geological events that both destroy and create. One could say the earth is only alive on the surface because it's alive on the inside. And that's why geology rocks
Creating this was a tough decision between choosing what seemed real and what seemed cool. I decided to go for cool (yet still at least accurate to the many diagrams I've seen of this stuff since I was a little kid) as such a clean-cut view of any planet is likely never to happen so in a way I went for something that better matched the simplicity of those diagrams seen on school projects the world over, only with an added sense of epicness to it

amazing picture but the earth's core is still a theory and we don't really know for sure what's inside our planet because we have never drilled deep enough to confirm the core's existence , we suppose it exist because of seismology
I only learned this year that the mantle is solid for the most part. Now I'm learning the core might not even exist I mean it could just be a gradual transition from liquid to solid for all we know. But it would be cool if it still had an actual boundary like we've always assumed.
the core of the earth is the source of everything!! the materials from which we made buildings, the mountains we climb, the atmosphere we breath, the oceans we swim in, the volcanoes we fear, the forests we walk in, the grass we walk upon, the resources we harness, and life itself!! all of it.
Don't quote me boy I ain't said shi.
