Mission to Study Earth's Gaping 'Open Wound' Live Science - March 1, 2007
A 12 member team of scientists will embark on a voyage next week to study an 'open wound' on the Atlantic seafloor where the EarthÕs deep interior lies exposed without any crust covering. The Earth's crust (mantle) is mysteriously missing and instead is covered with dark green rock from deep inside the planet. A robot will travel to the bottom of the crater and film what it sees. The hole is about 16,400 feet under the surface of the Atlantic Ocean.
