Inge Lehmann

Inge Lehmann

Inge became famous because of having discovered the existence of Earth’s core in 1888. Today is the 127 year after the birth of an outstanding scientist who died in 1993. While studying Earth, Inge found that Earth had two cores, and this revelation completely changed the way, the planet was studied. Of course, Inge couldn’t access the planet’s core, instead she used deduction and facts to find something that no one could see. On all her pictures she described the core as a shiny sphere, though the images of the Earth itself could vary.

The famous seismologist got her education at the public mixed-gender school, which was unusual for girls at that time and she was upset about the status of women in science. Her relative, Niles Groes said that she was very persistent about the study. Inge created her own system of porridge boxed in which she organized the information about all the earthquakes in the world. She managed to register the speed of spreading of the earthquakes in all parts of the Earth. By analyzing the data, she managed to create her own theory about the Earth’s inner structure.

She was awarded with the William Bowie medal in 1971 for the discovery.
