A reservoir of water three times the volume of all the oceans has been discovered deep beneath the Earth’s surface. The finding could help explain where Earth’s seas came from.

The water is hidden inside a blue rock that lies 700 kilometres underground in the mantle, the layer of hot rock between Earth’s surface and its core.

Some geologists think water arrived in comets as they struck planets, but the new discovery supports an alternative idea that the ocean oozed out of Earth’s interior layer.



That’s where the lizard people live


mind blown


I just wanna point something out.

You know how you always see those pictures of the strange types of fish that live in the deep, deep sea?

like this one

or this one

and this one

If any and if possible imagine what the fish look like in the DEEP, DEEP sea. 

I’m smelling a million dollar creepy story. 

That smells awful… fishy

it begins 

Alright because its clear no one who commented above read the article, I’ll bite and explain more. 

The water that scientists have found is basically trapped in rock. This rock is an olivine polymorph called “ringwoodite" and its chemical structure is such that  water can be trapped inside its crystals. We’re not talking about an actual "ocean" but rather we are talking about a volume of water trapped in these ringwoodite crystals deep in the earth that may be equivalent to the volumes mentioned in the article in the OP, and at certain depths it has been found that the rocks effectively "sweat out" the water due to the immense heat and pressure found upwards of 700km inside the Earth.

By measuring the speed of the waves at different depths, the team could figure out which types of rocks the waves were passing through. The water layer revealed itself because the waves slowed down, as it takes them longer to get through soggy rock than dry rock.

Sure enough, they found signs of wet ringwoodite in the transition zone 700 kilometres down, which divides the upper and lower regions of the mantle. At that depth, the pressures and temperatures are just right to squeeze the water out of the ringwoodite. “It’s rock with water along the boundaries between the grains, almost as if they’re sweating,”

I think the best analogy to use here would be wet dirt vs dry dirt. What scientists have found is analogous to wet dirt in that there’s definitely water there, but it’s not like you could go swimming in it or anything.





The blackest bird there ever was. It’s black on the outside from head to toe, and black on the inside with its meat and organs.

It’s called the Ayam Cemani from Indonesia, and they’re $2,500 a pop. Their bones are black, too. The only part of them that’s not black is their blood 

That’s metal.

And this, ladies and gentlemen, is what happens if you don’t reply to someone’s messages. They become this sort of ogre-like creature that speaks things they literally know nothing of, out of one pure and powerful emotion: Spite.

If you add an R however they become a delicious thirst-quenching beverage though, so I’m cool with it.
