Abstract
For the first time, a statistically significant tomography of the Earth, using the attenuation of high energy atmospheric neutrinos, has been performed. Here we summarize the results obtained with one year of IceCube data~\cite{paper}. The density distribution of the Earth is obtained with a five-layer model, confirmed to be statistically compatible with the PREM model. The same averaged density in the core and the mantel is excluded with pvalue = 1\%, with preference for a denser core region. The total mass and momentum of inertia are statistically consistent with the gravitational inferred measures.
