Ever wonder what would happen if you tried to fall through the Earth? Some fun and quirky scientists have put together a video clip that answers questions like this in a simple and entertaining way.

It turns out that falling through the Earth is probably not going to turn out well for people. The middle of the Earth is molten lava, and molten lava is super hot. When people have tried to dig the deepest hole in the world, they eventually had to stop because it got too hot. The scientists don’t just stop there though, they also make some suppositions and follow those "what ifs" toward the end of the video.

It seems that we will have to wait until a teleportation device is invented to travel around the world any faster than a plane will take us. Stats for Simplified Science Videos Trending: Older & Chilly
