What would half the Earth look like?
« on: 03/08/2016 11:42:58 »
If we could slice the Earth in half and leave the inner or outer core intact (like cutting an avocado), what would it look like from space?
 
Thanks.

But most of the Earth is liquid,
 so the result of splitting it in two would be more like splitting a drop of water than halving an avocado.
