NASA works at detecting earthquakes
NASA has announced that it has installed a group of 500 ground stations throughout the Western Coast of the United States that will communicate with GPS satellites in orbit. The goal of the system, dubbed READI, is to more quickly locate the source of an earthquake, determinate strength, and warn of any tsunami created.
The quicker and more accurate locating the earthquakes scientists can be , the faster emergency personnel can be dispatched. NASA says a challenging to acquire data from traditional seismological instruments on the ground. The system using satellites in orbit will be able to check the data second by second.
