The Eden Project has got the full £16.8million it needs to fund its geothermal energy 'revolution'.

The attraction in Cornwall announced that it now has enough money to go ahead with plans to drill into the Earth's core to extract power.

Machine - Water - Miles - Earth - Molten

It will build a machine to send water almost three miles underground, where it will be 'superheated' by the Earth's molten core and come back boiling hot.

This hot water will then be used to heat the famous 'biome' greenhouses and to generate electricity to power the other buildings and eventually homes in the local community.

'Since - Eden - Dream - World - Energy

'Since we began, Eden has had a dream that the world should be powered by renewable energy,' said the co-founder of the revolutionary site, Sir Tim Smit.

'The sun can provide massive solar power and the wind has been harnessed by humankind for thousands of years but because both are intermittent and battery technology cannot yet store all we need there is a gap.

Answer - Feet - Heat - Technology - Water

'We believe the answer lies beneath our feet in the heat underground that can be accessed by drilling technology that pumps water towards the centre of the earth and brings it back up superheated to provide...
