Nicole Rushin 1. On a recent tour to the center of the earth. I was able to describe how the immense  amount of heat energy released from gravitational energy and from decay of radioactive  elements melted the entire planet ant it is still cooling today. I also showed how the  earth’s crust is divided into four main layers inner core, outer core, mantle and crust. I  was able to show how the outer core is so hot. When we reach the inner core we had to  put on protective clothing because the temperature reached up to 4300 which is solid  iron. We also viewed the different material that compose it such as iron, magnesium,  aluminum, silicon and oxygen, all silicale compounds. Because the layers become  thicker as you go down it shows why the density in the material increases. 2.
