Earth is composed of four main layers, starting with an inner core at the planet's center, enveloped by the outer core, mantle, and right on top is the crust.

The inner core is a solid sphere made of iron and nickel metals about 1221 kilometers (about the distance from Florida to New York City) in radius, according to NASA.

It is the innermost layer of our planet, and it plays a crucial role in maintaining the planet's overall stability and magnetic field.

Even though it is deep beneath the Earth's surface, the core is an integral part of the planet. However, there might be cause for concern as a study reveals it may have stopped and started spinning in the opposite direction.The team of researchers conducted the study by analyzing seismic waves from earthquakes which have rocked the Earth for the past 60 years.
