Tsunami Space

One month ago today the monster Indian Ocean earthquake which ripped across the sea and decimated the coastal communities of a dozen south Asian nations also knocked the "mean North pole" approximately 2.5 centimeters or 1 inch in the direction of 145ยบ east longitude and decreased the length of day by 2.68 microseconds.

Here, NASA details some of the earthquake's effects on the home planet; and compiles space-eye views of the coasts devastated by Tsunami waters, as seen from Landsat-7, the Space Station, and other spaceborne instruments.

It seems so strange and unnatural. But it isn't. And we think Mars will be a hazardous and inhospitable place to live.
