not enough to disrupt the field. but I might think along the lines of possible repercussions from extra added vibrations. just not something I would like to mess with

10 bucks says that if we Succeed, al natural disasters afterward will be blamed on it thumb.gif

drilling a small hole into the mantel will have 0 effect on the magnetic field. if that were true, the amount of volcanoes on earth would have had us toasted before we could even begin.

at the very worst there will be a bubble of magma popping as we "break through" - if you will.

the vibrations wont do anything either. they wont be amplified. think about it. every time theres an earthquake, vibrations are sent across the globe, how many of you feel the effect of an earthquake that happen in -lets say- japan? no one living in mid-west/west canada did. if those vibrations were amplified, half the planet would have ruptured after an avg sized earthquake.

I could see a blowout if they hit something they shouldn't I hope they use some big blowout preventers on the hole. People could be killed.

i would assume things like blowouts would have been accounted for. hazards we can think of, and then some, have most likely been taken into account. its not like they just went "hey lets dig a hole" and then started biggrin.gif

That depth record has been broken a few times, the newest record was only set about 40 days ago:

If we dig enough to reach high temperatures, we could potentially have a source of infinite power... until earth or the sun decides to change
