RE: Yellowstone
I dont want to be alarmist here. Did anyone just hear that Yellowstone is experiencing unusual and worrying seismic activity today? See those reports that it will likely erupt within the week? Thats right, you didn't.. Cause everything is fine. Carry on.Evil_monster

That's actually pretty disconcerting. Can we do anything about it?

No. If it goes, you're screwed.

RE: Yellowstone
Just to be clear: we actually want our planet's core to be solid, followed by a liquid middle layer, and then another rigid layer just under the upper mantle and then the crust. We want the liquid core to stay molten for as long as possible.

As the Earth continues to age and cool, more and more of the core becomes solid, and when it does, the Earth shrinks a little bit. That's why we have earthquakes.

When our core finally does cool off completely, we will lose our atmosphere, like our planetary neighbor, Mercury. No worries there: our sun will have already enveloped us by that time and we'll already be dead.


Merry Christmas! Shy

And likely Mars.

We will lose our atmosphere because we will have no magnetic field to deflect the solar wind, which will then shred our atmosphere and carry it all away. Weeping

Yeah, like someone said, "it's not fluffy bunnies and sparkly unicorns".
