Weekly Reader News - Senior;4/20/2007, Vol. 85 Issue 23, p6
This article provides information on a hole found in Earth's crust. On March 2, 2007, a team of 12 British scientists set sail to find out why a large chunk of Earth's outer layer is missing three miles below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean. The hole is situated about 2,300 miles southwest of the Canaries and scientists suspect it is 30 miles long and 30 miles wide. With the use of a robotic device, the team will film the site and take samples to study.
