The Real Thing
Chikyu (Earth, in English) is a Japanese scientific drilling ship built for the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP). The vessel is designed to ultimately drill seven kilometres beneath the seabed, where the Earth's crust is much thinner, and into the Earth's mantle, deeper than any other hole drilled in the ocean thus far.


Chikyu (Terra, em Português) É um navio de perfuração científica japonesa construído para o Programa Integrado Ocean Drilling (IODP). O navio é projetado para perfurar até sete quilômetros abaixo do fundo do mar, onde a crosta da Terra é muito mais fina, e tentar chegar ao manto da Terra, mais profundo do que qualquer outro buraco perfurado no oceano até agora.
