The book also examines the various techniques employed in exploring both the infinitely big and the infinitely small.

How do P Waves and S Waves give Information about the Structure of the Earth? The transverse S waves cannot travel through the liquid outer core. They can travel through the mantle because the mantle behaves more like a solid than a liquid.
