BBC - 10 Things You Didn't Know About Earthquakes

Iain Stewart looks at some of the world's most dramatic earthquakes and reveals the stories and
science behind them. In seconds, these powerful forces of nature which cannot be predicted or
prevented can shake a town to destruction and shift the landscape forever. We discover why quakes
can last 60 times longer on the moon than on earth; how one particular earthquake fault line can
produce hallucinations; and how 1960s Cold War spying gave scientists a crucial clue to
understanding them.
