Are you feeling dizzy?

The solid core that measures about 1,500 miles in diameter is spinning about one-quarter to one-half degree faster, per year, than the rest of the world, scientists from Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign report in Friday’s issue of the journal Science.

That solid inner core is surrounded by a fluid outer core about 4,200 miles across.

Well, gee, now The Journey to the Center of the Earth is completely unbelieveable!

  1. Are you feeling dizzy?

    Why yes, over the last few years I’ve been feeling dizzier and dizzier… thanks for asking. No wonder girls keep slapping me…My equilibrium must be off balance.
