Wow! I didn't know satellites could take measurements as small as 6cm. That's intense. And super cool.

The wave-like patterns of upheaval (and "downheaval"?) are interesting. I knew earthquakes radiated out from a center point called the epicenter, but I didn't realize the ground would shift along the waves.

I like patterns, especially when there's an explanation.

All of the people who came up with this website you are a genious!! I feel like we should try to tell the world what the great things they can discover in learning more about science! We also need to teach math more beecause math is something that goes a lot into science so we all need to teach them the Algebra that they need to learn and all of the equtations that we need to learn about science!
