Earth cracking up
It's interesting to live in a time when a brand new rift in the earth's crust makes its appearance. Since the Himalayan range is slowing the movement of the west side of the Indo-Australian plate, it is beginning to buckle out in the middle of the Indian Ocean. There has been much more frequent and stronger seismic activity there in the last few years than science has ever seen before.
