A group of Japanese scientists is planning to drill through the Earth's crust to reach the mantle for the first time in history. The preliminary study is expected to start in September.

The Japanese government, which is helping to fund the expedition, hopes the research could help discover ways to better predict earthquakes.
Moreover, the project is aimed at exploring the oceanic crust and examining how deep microbial life exists inside the planet.
