I have assigned myself a project on Geothermal energy for a course that I am taking in
Physics. I understand that the internal heat of the earth comes from both
radioactive decay and the effect of the Moon (which I read on a previous question on
radioactivity and lava on Mad Sci). Please could you help to explain these
processes, scientific deatail would be appreciated.
