Lancaster PA -- Seismologists from the University of Pennsylvania discovered the world's deepest hole today in Lancaster. The hole was dug in a sandbox by two boys playing with a plastic shovel. The hole is one foot wide and 18,000 miles long. It goes all the way to Sichuan China.
Scientists say the hole was made May 12 and 'probably' caused the catastrophic quake. The boys said they were very sorry.
Dr. Caspar Mojo is a seismologist and had a chance to study the hole.
"It is quite amazing. You can stick your head in the hole and see all the way to the other side of the world. Everything is upside-down! It's amazing nothing falls. It looks as if everything is glued into place." said Dr. Mojo.
Curious Chinese are also sticking their heads into the hole to get a look at Pennsylvania.
Scientists think the discovery will revolutionize the world. They want the kids to dig a hole to Saudi Arabia to steal their oil. Scientists say the earth will eventually have more holes than Swiss cheese and hope there are no more giant earthquakes.
