    I love our dynamic earth!

    It's just so amazing, I've learnt at school something so unbelievable. Did you know: there's over 2,000 seismic waves in the earths mantle and inner & outer core. Also, seismic waves usually go in a straight line but the convection current in the mantle stops it. How amazing!

    Fascinating Earth
