Journey to the Centre of the Earth

How far would you have to travel to reach the Earth's core? And what would you see along the way? Discover what lies beneath...

Congratulations! You've reached the center of the earth

The forces of gravity are pulling equally in all directions and you are now weightless.

But don't get too comfortable.
It’s over 6,000C here - you were cooked long ago.

The distance to the centre of the Earth has been taken as the volumetric mean radius of the Earth: 6,371km. Note that this distance and the depth of geological layers varies across geographical locations. Depths shown are maxima, except where stated. Sea creature depths are lower limit of normal depth range, except where stated. Oil well and borehole values are vertical, not measured depths. Vehicles are not to scale.
