While other regions are still waiting for winter, snow has already begun to fall in an odd location: the Earth’s core. How is that possible? That is a subject that researchers are currently attempting to solve.
A model was developed by a group of experts from Sichuan University in China, according to Sciencealert. Initially, they were curious as to why earthquake waves in the deeper 160 miles of the Earth’s core decelerate faster than is physically conceivable. Snowfall, it turns out, is the reason behind this.
Crystals in the outer core, according to Nick Dygert of the University of Texas, drip down from several hundred miles to the inner core.
This occurrence has astonished experts. The core of our planet appears to still be riddled with riddles. The only certainties are that the inner core is still solid and the outer core is liquid and that both cores are made of iron and nickel.
