OUT '« V/A.V. We may soon know more about the surface of the moon than we know about the inside of our own earth! Man is able to examine only the outermost part of the crust of rock that forms the outside of the earth. What is below I this crust is something we have very good theories about, based on some good evidence. This is the picture of the earth that scientists now offer us. The crust of the earth has t w o layers. The upper layer, which makes the continents, is of granite. Under the layer of granite is a thick layer of very hard rock called basalt. This layer of basalt supports the continents and forms the basins that hold I h e oceans. Scientists believe that at I h e center of the earth is a huge ball of molten iron with a diameter of about 4,000 miles. Between the central ball and the rocky crust is a shell about 2,000 miles thick culled the "mantle." The mantle probably is made of a kind of rock called "olivine." Now how do we know that the center of the earth Is molten iron and how did it get there? Scientists have figured out that tho mean density of the earth is 5.5. They know the density of granite (3.0) and the density of basalt (2.7). So to make up that mean density of 5,5, there must be much denser matter within t h e earth than the granite and the basalt. The density of this matter must be much greater than 5.5 to make up (or the lighter stuff on the outside of the earth. So they conclude that this mailer at the center of the earth must be composed of heavy metals, especially iron, since Ihls isjsalt. the commonest heavy metal in the crust of the earth. Scientists also believe that at one lime the earth wasn't solid but was in a fluid state. In this state, the iron and the silicates (rocks) wouldn't mix. So a core of metal, sharply separated from the rocky shell was formed, and is still there. By the way, the temperature at the center of the earth is believed to be about 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit, so that iron is likely to remain in a molten state for some time! KUN T1MK The.
