A Japanese-led expedition plans to drill deeper into the Earth than ever before by 2030.

The idea is to send a drill 2.5 miles to the bottom of the ocean, then use it to drill through another 3.7 miles of crust to penetrate into Earth's mantle, the deepest hole ever dug. The expedition will then be able to study the planet's geological dynamics like never before, and even search for mysterious life that might reside in Earth's underbelly.

What could go wrong?

Based on a UN Report published July 2018

" Many countries do not have the capacity to coordinate local monitoring when it comes to improving their cities"

"UNITED NATIONS - A global drive to make cities safer and more resilient to disasters is being hampered as many countries are unable to gather local data, monitor progress or even clearly define 'city' and 'urban,' a United Nations report said on Wednesday.

Designing and implementing consistent measurements is vital before urban woes such as growing slums and worsening air pollution can be tackled, according to the report by UN-Habitat, the U.N agency for urban development and human settlements."

Is Smart City always works with city planners or can also be done by urban designers?
