Latest Quake Stories
Chuck Bednar for redOrbit.com - @BednarChuck If you’re one of the Tennessee residents that has been awakened by loud explosions recently, you have an unusual weather phenomenon known as cryoseisms to thank for your lack of sleep. What is a cryoseism? According to WKRN News in Nashville, several people living in middle Tennessee have heard what they describe as “loud booms” or “explosions” in the middle of the night. Some have called the local news or even 911 believing that...

A new technique developed by scientists at California’s Stanford University has confirmed that the Los Angeles would experience stronger-than-anticipated ground movement should major seismic activity occur to the city’s south.
Magnetar -- A magnetar is a neutron star with a strong magnetic field. The theory around these objects was formulated by Robert Duncan and Christopher Thompson. When in a supernova a star collapses to a neutron star, its magnetic field increases dramatically in strength. Duncan and Thompson calculated that the magnetic field of a neutron star, normally an already enormous 1012 tesla could under certain circumstances grow even larger, to about 1015 tesla. Such a highly magnetic neutron...
