Expressions like “cold as hell,” “snowball’s chance in hell” and “cold day in hell” may be more/less accurate than previously believed, according to a new study in Nature.
According to the study’s media release,
The inner core of the Earth is simultaneously melting and freezing due to circulation of heat in the overlying rocky mantle, according to new research from the University of Leeds, UC San Diego and the Indian Institute of Technology.
The study is based on a computer model so no one will be verifying any of this any time soon. But maybe a snowball does have a chance in hell after all?
