# How deep would you have to dig a hole to get to China?

If you were living in America how deep would you have to dig a hole to get to China? How many miles deep. Could you build an elevator down the hole to get there too? Is it possible? Please give suggestions. Thank You.

Hey again... haha, I would say it isnt possible to do, because of the heat intensity and the crushing gravity, but then I also think when you were passing through the middle the earth would be around you pulling on all sides fairly equally and might it stretch you out? I don't know or crush you or would your structure stay in tact and somehow hover due to the equal gravitational pull all around... haha no idea very puzzling to wonder about. But say we figured all that out the elevator would have to be quite complex to deal with the changes in gravitation pull... And I think the planet is 8000 miles in diameter, if thats true (I think it is...) it would be 8000 miles long... When we figure all this out maybe we could :) lol

um I only got half way when I tried it... my shovel broke and all the mole people who were helping me died...t'was tragic but good luck with your hole, dont listen to all those people, you can accomplish anything you put your mind to

that is 100% impossible. Don't you know that?!?! 1. the core of the earth is boiling hot magma. 2. you still wouldn't get any where near china

You could not dig directly to china because of the core within the earth of hot magma so it's not possible
