ESP contributing to science outreach

13.03.2018 | Lara O'Dwyer Brown

ESP's own Kenni Petersen has been busy contributing to popular science media!

Kenni has been consulted for two articles concerning the recent discovery of an eighth (hidden) continent, Zealandia. His contributions on this topic include debate about whether Zealandia is truly a continent or a microcontinent. He also provided input for a general article on how we define and count continents.

Kenni also provided a very comprehensive answer to the question: How could it be that the earth is glowing inside and not long ago cooled? If we are dealing with thermo-nuclear processes, a kind of nuclear power plant in the middle of the Earth, which is the source of heat, why is nuclear fuel not long used up?
