The reason behind the drilling of the earth’s crust

A team of Chinese engineers has been drilling an extremely deep well into the Earth’s crust for scientific purposes since May. So far, they have managed to reach a depth of 6,000 meters.

The well is located deep inside the Taklimakan Desert, which is the largest desert in China . The final depth of the well is expected to be 11,100 meters .

During the drilling process, the equipment used, including drill bits and tubes weighing more than 2,000 tons, goes deep into the Earth, breaking through more than 10 continental layers , Xinhua reports.

Exploration in the Tarim Basin is especially challenging due to its hostile terrestrial environment and the challenging underground conditions it presents.

Notably, the record for the deepest well dug by humans remains the Kola super-deep well, located near Murmansk in the Russian Arctic. This project, initiated by the Soviet Union in 1970, reached a depth of 12,262 meters and was closed in 2008.
