The experimental Earth-Borer operated by a new method of harnessing atomic energy: it was designed to probe the deepest secrets at the very core of the planet. Tony Stark successfully tested it just before the whole factory fell through the Earth.[1]

This was done by the Mole Man, who wanted the atomic Earth-Digger to dig entrances to the surface, through which his army could make a sneak attack. Iron Man traded it for Pepper Potts' life, but, since the device wasn't perfected, the Mole Man caused it to overload with radiation and explode.[2]
