Quote:A group of Japanese scientists, researchers from Japan's Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC), want to be the first to successfully drill into the Earth's mantle.

The Japanese government, which is helping to fund the expedition, hopes the research could help discover ways to better predict earthquakes.
Moreover, the project is aimed at exploring the oceanic crust and examining how deep microbial life exists inside the planet.

Wait, wait, wait...

6 kilometers plus 4 more for the ocean? To reach the mantle? On what ƒükking planet? Not earth. The earth's crust is nearly 34 k thick. 6 k will not even be as deep as the Russians went (12 k ). Even including the ocean they are only going 10 k. I call bull shït on this story.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

I wouldn't worry about it. They aren't even going 1/6 of the way through the crust. Last I heard, we don't have the ability to drill any further than the Russians did because the heat and pressure bind the drill and stop it from turning.

I was wondering about that too and had to browse:

The trench is not the part of the seafloor closest to the center of the Earth. This is because the Earth is not a perfect sphere; its radius is about 25 kilometres (16 mi) less at the poles than at the equator.[5] As a result, parts of the Arctic Ocean seabed are at least 13 kilometres (8.1 mi) closer to the Earth's center than the Challenger Deep seafloor.

I'm with you, it's a dangerous thing to do.
