Caption

Earth's internal structure. Cutaway artwork with an expanded segment showing the different layers that make up the structure of the Earth. The external layer (crust) shows the Earth's surface topography and atmosphere, including land, water and clouds. The crust extends downwards for around 35 kilometres. The mantle (solid and semi-molten rock, orange) extends downwards for 2855 kilometres. The outer core (red) is a liquid layer of iron and nickel, extending downwards for another 2210 kilometres. The inner core (yellow) is a solid sphere of iron-nickel alloy, with a radius of around 1278 kilometres.
