They are formed by plumes of molten rock rising from the mantle up through the crust. This process is similar to how Earth’s volcanos function. Interestingly, most of Earth’s volcanism occurs along the boundaries of tectonic plates, but modern Venus doesn’t seem to possess tectonic plates. They identified three dozen features on Venus

Earth's Inner Core

Earth's Inner Core According to recent research, the Earth's inner core may currently be revolving slower than the planet's surface after having stopped spinning faster than it. Findings: In the early 1970s, the inner core began rotating a little bit more quickly than the rest of the planet. However, it had been slowing before synchronizing with Earth's rotation in 2009. A "negative trend" has occurred, which indicates that the inner core is currentl


Quasicrystals In the Sand Hills in north-central Nebraska, USA, researchers have located a third naturally occurring source of quasicrystals. What are Quasicrystals? Quasicrystals are intriguing substances with an unusual confluence of features. They serve as evidence of the strength and beauty of asymmetry in the natural world. In contrast to conventional crystal: As opposed to conventional crystals, which have their atoms arranged in a set, repeated pattern, quasicr

E-prime Layer

According to a new study, Earth core's mysterious new layer was formed due to surface water diving deep. Inner Earth – It has 4 primary layers Inner core (innermost layer) Outer core Mantle (middle layer) Crust (outermost layer) E-prime layer – It is the new enigmatic layer which is formed at the Earth's outer core as a result of surface water penetrating deep into the planet. It is more than 60 miles (100 kilometers)
