Under the Dome
Used & New from: $0.94
why didn't they just burrow underground? I've read about 420 pages of this book and the one thing I was thinking almost since the start of this book was why doesn't someone try burrowing underground? I think it's at least implied that the dome goes underground by why don't they try digging to see how far underground it goes? Maybe they could make a tunnel and get the people out or at least get some supplies in the town. Do they ever do that in the novel?

They did. Page 149. One of the first things that army on the outside tried.

That's the implication, yes. They're essentially trapped in a bubble.

It's a capsule, not a dome. This is explained early on.

At the end of the book it clearly said that the dome went into the ground for miles.

I didn't read the story but.....

What the people in the dome SHOULD HAVE DONE was find the exact center of the dome. Dig there. Maybe they'd find the force field machine.

yeah but I mean couldn't they just keep digging until they found out how far deep this thing goes? Does the dome connect underground making it in the shape of a giant circle?
