At 10 km depth, we have roughly 3000 bar pressure. If the hole is empty (air), the pressure difference is 3000 bar. If it is full of water, itâ s 2000 bar. This is far above the unconfined elastic strength of most rocks, so the hole will collapse… (Budget: $30-$250 USD, Jobs: Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Materials Engineering)
