Now an international team of researchers has laboratory evidence showing why some faults that 'should not' slip are weaker than previously thought. Their findings are detailed in this week's edition of the journal Nature. "Low-angle normal faults--faults that dip less than 45 degrees--are a problem," said Chris Marone, professor of geosciences, Penn State. "Standard analysis shows that these faults should not...

It was used in fabrics such as Egyptian burial cloths and Charlemagne's tablecloth, which, according to legend, he threw in a fire to clean. When asbestos is used for its resistance to fire or heat, the fibers are typically mixed with cement or woven...
