Inside the earth the size of the earth -- about 12,750 kilometers (km) in diameter-was known by the ancient greeks, but it was not until the turn of the 20th century that scientists determined that our planet is made up of three main layers: crust, mantle, and core this layered structure can be compared to that of a boiled egg.
