Lecture for Young Students, the Power Driving the Earth's Engine: What is in the Earth's Interior? 〜Scientific Drilling and Neutrino Research〜


The Earth where we live is one of the planets in the universe. To learn about these planets, people have applied their scientific knowledges. Neutrino observation and deep sea drilling are the cutting edge scientific technologies for understanding the Earth. Our public event at Sendai Astronomical Observatory aims to share what we have learned about the planet Earth through various approaches and exciting future prospects for understanding the Earth's deep interior. The talk event will be a hybrid of in–person and YouTube streaming. We look forward to your participation.
