內容簡介


超過3000公里的深度,一個宛如火星大小的底層世界,一場難以達成及想像的探險之旅
史上最難達成的探險─地心之旅

我們所居住的地球外觀看似一切平靜,但地表上火山的噴發、蠢蠢欲動的地震帶及如夢似幻的極光都是地心運動的最佳證明。幾千年來地表上的各種現象,都充分解釋地心的神秘與傳奇,科學史上許多知名科學家也非常醉心於研究地心探險的可能性。甚至有科學家以瘋狂的假想,認為在地表上炸開裂縫,把幾百萬公噸的熔融鐵倒進地表的裂隙裡,滾燙的液體會在數星期之內向下深掘3000多公里,直達地球核心,再放入金屬探測器,便有探索地球內部的運作可能。

150年前科幻作家朱爾•凡爾納以經典著作《地心歷險記》開啟無數人對地心探險的想像,如今,科普作家懷特豪斯將集結所有關於地心的科學新發現,一同探討地心之旅的可能性。

The journey to the centre of the earth is a voyage like no other we can imagine.


Over 3,000 km below the earth's surface an extraordinary inner world the size of Mars awaits us.

Dive through the molten iron of the outer core and eventually you will reach a solid sphere - an iron-clad world held within a metal sea and unattached to anything above.

At the earth's core is the history of our planet written in temperature and pressure, crystals and minerals . . .

Our planet appears tranquil from outer space. And yet the arcs of volcanoes, the earthquake zones and the auroral glow rippling above our heads are testimony to something remarkable happening inside . . .

For thousands of years these phenomena were explained in legend and myth. Only in recent times has the brave new science of seismology emerged. One hundred and fifty years after the extraordinary, imaginative feat of Jules Verne's JOURNEY TO THE CENTRE OF THE EARTH, David Whitehouse embarks on a voyage of scientific discovery into the heart of our world.
