Scientists Discover Underground ‘Mountains’ on Earth’s Core Five-Times Taller than Mount Everest

A recent study exploring what’s deep beneath the Earth’s surface has made an amazing discovery. It found an old ocean floor structure that might be wrapping around the Earth’s core. In some places, this structure could be taller than Mount Everest.

This study used very detailed maps to look at what’s at the center of our planet. The research found a thin but super dense layer about 2,900 kilometers below the surface. This special layer is right where solid rocks meet the hot, liquid core of the Earth.

Samantha Hansen, a geologist from the University of Alabama, said that these kinds of studies give us the clearest pictures of what’s inside our planet. They’re showing that this structure is much more complex and detailed than we thought before.
