The International Year of Planet Earth

Secrets of the Earth

On February12th, 2008, UNESCO officially launched the International Year of Planet Earth, a project that will last until the end of 2009. From the Earth’s violent and unsettled beginnings to the puzzling nature of its core, or the countless phenomena that occur in its mantle, scientists are trying to piece back together our planet’s history, and also its future: Will the Earth’s magnetic field disappear? What changes will take place at the surface? What hidden treasures have yet to be uncovered? CNRS international magazine takes you on a journey to a place we still have much to learn about: planet Earth.
