Massive Underwater Ocean Discovered Close to Earth's Core


Water discovered close to the core of the earth is 3 times larger than all the oceans

There is a lot more water within the earth than what we see on the surface apparently...

A reservoir of water three times the volume of all the oceans has been discovered deep beneath the Earth’s surface. The finding may explain where Earth’s seas came from, and lend some interesting evidence to the Hollow Earth Theory.

The water is hidden inside a blue rock called ringwoodite that lies 700 kilometres underground in the mantle, the layer of hot rock between Earth’s surface and its core.  The huge size of the reservoir throws new light on the origin of Earth’s water. Many geologists think water arrived in comets as they struck the planet, but the new discovery supports an alternative idea that the oceans gradually oozed out of the interior of the early Earth.

“It’s good evidence the Earth’s water came from within,” says Steven Jacobsen of Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. The hidden water could also act as a buffer for the oceans on the surface, explaining why they have stayed the same size for millions of years.

Jacobsen’s team used 2000 seismometers to study the seismic waves generated by more than 500 earthquakes. These waves move throughout Earth’s interior, including the core, and can be detected at the surface. “They make the Earth ring like a bell for days afterwards,” says Jacobsen.

By measuring the speed of the waves at different depths, the team could figure out which types of rocks the waves were passing through. The water layer revealed itself because the waves slowed down, as it takes them longer to get through soggy rock than dry rock.

Crocodile known as Michael Jackson shot after fisherman killed in front of wife in NT


A fisherman has been killed by a crocodile in the Northern Territory after wading into a river to unsnag his line.

The 57-year-old man’s wife looked on as he was attacked at the Adelaide River, about 60 kilometres from Darwin, on Monday afternoon.

Police say the man's wife ran for help after seeing her husband taken by a crocodile.

"He was there with his wife and he was fishing on the water's edge," NT Police Superintendent Jo Foley said.

"She left the scene because she saw this happen."


Police and wildlife officers searched the river using multiple boats, and located and shot a 4.5-metre crocodile known as 'Michael Jackson' a few hours later.

The man's body was recovered late on Monday night.

Adelaide River is a well-known crocodile hot spot where tourists watch the huge reptiles propel their bodies from the water to seize dangled hunks of meat.

The man was taken 100 metres from where the jumping crocodile tourist boats embark.

There are signs in the area warning that crocodiles are present and dangerous.

Operations manager at St John Ambulance Craig Garraway said staff were called and treated the man's wife for shock but she wanted to remain at the scene.

A report is being prepared for the coroner.
