Majority of Earth's interior heat dates back to its formation, some 4.5 billion years ago.
As numerous smaller particles crashed and clumped together, Earth and the other planets in the solar system began to take shape.
The heat energy was converted from the energy of such forceful impacts.
Gravity began to draw matter toward the center as the early Earth grew larger.
The interior of the Earth is extremely heated (the core temperature exceeds 5,000 degrees Celsius) for two reasons:
The heat from the formation of the planet, as well as the heat from radioactive decay.
The hottest areas on Earth range from bustling metropolis to magnificent desert vistas, with temperatures often exceeding 100 degrees Fahrenheit. One of the hottest place on Earth is Tunisia's Kebili.
This desert hamlet is noted for its high-quality dates, which don't seem to mind the summer temperatures reaching 40 degrees or more.
The hottest temperature ever recorded was 55 degrees Fahrenheit, which occurred in July 1931.
