Nice article. I wonder what might happen to a nuclear power plant during an earthquake? Could the cooling tank be breached? Makes you think.....

@ Misfit - do you know IF these two are related to one another or not?


The Quake Catcher Network (QCN) is a research project that uses Internet-connected computers to do research, education, and outreach in seismology. You can participate by downloading and running a free program on your computer. Currently only certain Mac (OS X) PPC and Intel laptops are supported -- recent ones which have a built-in accelerometer.
QCN is a joint project between Stanford University and University of California at Riverside
