Dr. Hesse's percolation PNAS research

Trickle-down is the Solution (to the Planetary Core Formation Problem) says ICES research published by prestigious PNAS

Scientists have long pondered how rocky bodies in the solar system—including our own Earth—got their metal cores. According to new ICES research, evidence points to the downwards percolation of molten metal toward the center of the planet through tiny channels between grains of rock. Read more.
