If everything goes well, soon we will be able to reach the centre of the Earth using 7200ºF flame jets that can go into any kind of material at 100 feet an hour. Wait, “if everything goes well”?
Yes, apparently this is a great idea because it can be the key to obtain cheap geothermal power. These drills—created by Jared Potter—will go deep into Mother Earth to reach the magma to make geothermal energy wells. The magma will be used then to superheat water and produce electricity using steam and turbines—forever and ever—something that is impossible now even with today’s state-of-the-art drilling technology.
