There is no way I want to go down for a visit - I don't think there are return tickets
Little link for some information.
The deepest man has ever gone is a little over 2 miles - rather more than your 12 metres!
Even so, that's a very small fraction of the thickness of the crust, and the crust is tiny compared to the whole of the Earth. There's no way that anyone would ever get anywhere near to the core and even if they did they'd be dead long before they got near to it.
