SAN FRANCISCO---In "Journey to the Centre of the Earth," Jules Verne took readers on an amazing expedition into the heart of the planet. University of Michigan geologist Peter van Keken takes students and fellow scientists on equally marvelous tours---skittering around subduction zones and zooming in on earthquake activity. But instead of using picks, axes and ropes as Verne's characters did, van Keken employs virtual reality to explore Earth's inner reaches.
