Drilling Into The Mantle

Scientists working on the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program have been attempting to drill through the Earth’s crust and into the mantle for the first time. However, they didn’t quite make it. Scientists said this week they had drilled into the lower section of Earth’s crust for the first time and were poised to break through to the mantle in coming years. The Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) seeks the elusive “Moho,” a boundary formally known as the Mohorovicic discontinuity. It marks the division between Earth’s brittle outer crust and the hotter, softer mantle. […] The new hole, which took nearly eight weeks to drill, is the third deepest ever made into the floor of the sea, according to the National Science Foundation (NSF). The rock collection brought back to the surface is providing new information about the planet’s composition.”
