The scientists utilized about 2000 seismometers to study the waves of over 500 earthquakes. The analyzed the type of rocks generating the waves, stumbling upon what seemed like a large body of water underneath. Further tests confirmed that there was moisture present some 700 kilometers below.

Guess it’s only a matter of time before they find dinosaurs down there now!
