Abstract: The cosmic silence of the underground Gran Sasso laboratory together with the exceptional radio purity of the liquid scintillator, has allowed Borexino to investigate the radiogenic heating of the Earth’s interior and to contribute to various fields of experimental neutrino astronomy. This contribution is aimed to summarize the results obtained by Borexino on geo-neutrinos and on possible extra-terrestrial sources of antineutrinos such as supernovae explosions and solar flares.
