From Auntie Beeb

Quote:
Engineers have started drilling a hole deep below Newcastle in the search for a renewable energy source.

The Newcastle and Durham Universities team plans to sink a hole 2,000m (6,562ft) below the planned Science Central site, in the city centre.

Scientists hope the 900,000 project will result in water at a temperature of about 80C (176F) being pumped out.
