May 13th Google Doodle celebrating Inge Lehmann’s 127th Birthday - a Seismologist

Inge Lehmann was a Danish seismologist from Copenhagen, Denmark who discovered the Earth's inner core. In 1936, she assumed the existence of an inner core of the Earth's core (not just a single molten sphere) and suggested that this inner core has physical properties that are different from the outer core.

To know more about Inge or the Earth inner core, click the Google Doodle or google it up.
