+ - Earth's core made in miniature->

Submitted by ananyo
ananyo (2519492) writes "A 3-metre-tall metal sphere full of molten sodium is about to start work modelling the Earth's core. The gigantic dynamo, which has taken researchers 10 years to build, "will generate a self-sustaining electromagnetic field that can be poked, prodded and coaxed for clues about Earth's dynamo, which is generated by the movement of liquid iron in the outer core.""
