Core Find

Ron gets a cast-iron no-prize for bringing us news of recent discoveries about the Earth's core:

New evidence of a solid iron inner core to the planet comes from a digital broadband seismic array in Germany that is located in a lucky enough position to have captured a faint, but telltale, seismic signal. The signal was sent through the Earth from a particularly clear sort of earthquake deep in the crust on the other side of the planet.

Reminds me of someone whacking a bell or something. Geology is cool!
