Did The Design Of The Notre Dame Make It Vulnerable To Fire?

On Monday, the Notre Dame caught fire. The 850-year-old cathedral – famous for its gothic architecture, star-studded history, and its titular role in the Victor Hugo classic (and Disney’s interpretation of) “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” – is now fire-free, after 400 firefighters spent nine hours tackling the flames.

Mercury Has A Very Large Solid Inner Core

Mercury might be the smallest planet in the Solar System but its mysteries are as big as any other planet’s. A particularly intriguing one is to do with its disproportionally large metallic core, which occupies 85 percent of its volume. The latest analysis suggests that its inner core is solid just like Earth’s. What’s more, despite the fact that Mercury is so small, its inner core might be almost as big as our planet’s. As reported in Geophysical Research Letters, the team estimates that the inner core’s radius is 30 to 70 percent that of the outer (and molten) core.   “Mercury’s interior is still active, due to the molten core that powers the planet’s weak magnetic field, relative to Earth’s,” …
