The arrangement of one of the great terrestrial-heat power plants of the future. Water is circulated to the bottom of the shaft, returning as steam to drive the turbine, and then returned to liquid form in the condenser, in and unending cycle.  Internal heat of the earth is great and, in comparison with the demands which man can make upon it, is practically inexhaustible; since the heated contents of the earth are sextillions of tons.
