How geothermal is formed and used
Geothermal energy is generated in the earths core. Temperatures hotter than the suns surface, it is continuously produced inside the earth caused by slow decay of radioactive particles, a prosess that happens in all rocks. People use it to heat up their homes and produce electricity by drilling deep wells and pumping the hot underground water or steam.
