“Journey to the Center of the Earth” is a curated collection of articles published by the Smithsonian magazine. As you scroll down the page, you move deeper into the Earth — a thermometer and a depth gauge keep track of how far down the page you’ve scrolled. At each division (surface, crust, mantle, outer core, inner core), you’re given a selection of pieces about that layer as well as quick facts about the materials and physics which can be found at that depth.

It’s a lot to take in, but it’s very interesting!
