All metamorphic rock begins in hot, molten magma. All metamorphic rock IS igneous rock. Igneous intrusive rock is rock that has taken a long time to cool and harden without exposure to the atmosphere. Normal igneous intrusive rock has larger crystal growth, with crystals usually...
How to harness solar energy
By: Anthony Megna
There is an exciting new technology for the harnessing of solar energy in the works. It's called nano flakes and it was discovered by Dr. Martin Aagesen who is a researcher at the University of Copenhagen. Nano flakes can increase the harnessing power of solar...
The differences between igneous rock and metamorphic rock
By: LW
There are 3 main types of rock, which are igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic Igneous rock: Igneous rocks are crystalline solids which form directly from the cooling of magma (melted rock), this can take place either underground or above ground. It is formed below ground when...
