Deep Drill Industry

Right now, all of our available material on Earth can be dig up in just about 2km below surface, basically just scratching surface. Just the surface, and it's enough to supplied and run our modern world. That mean way, waaay more material and resource, some even unheard of, could be found much, much...

Earth-size (as in, diameter), not Earth-massed. Turn out, you can't build a black hole bomb if that thing is too small.

Re: Most creative way to manipulate boundary

Simply put, it’s a thing that separate , and defined one thing from another. Object, force, space, time,Border of country, language, thought , feeling, even concept, perception and truth... anything have border, as long as it’s defined... and since everything could be defined, everything have boundary
