King’s College faculty members Dr. Thomas Concannon, adjunct professor of mathematics, and Dr. Gerardo Giordano, assistant professor of physics, co-wrote a paper about the amount of time it would take to travel to the center of the earth. The King’s professors introduced the role that frictional effects would play for a gravity train traveling down a hypothetical tunnel through the core that would enable faster trips from one point to another on the Earth’s surface.
