What if we could tunnel to the centre of the Earth?This book tells you everything you would need to know about a trip to the planet's core, with the proposed journey to be made using an ingenious Centre-Pod drilling vehicle.

Starting with your first entry through the earth's mantle, at a boundary in the tectonic plates, you'll travel on through the geological layers to reach the twin layers of the earth's core. Activities for your holiday could include anything from exploring a volcano to hunting for diamonds under the cratons, and from discovering what it's like at the hypocentre of an earthquake to riding up a mantle plume on your return journey. Also included are special features such as lists of `What Not To Miss At The Earth's Core', `Top Ten Favourite Excursions', and `The Centre of the Earth in Popular Culture'.
