Tsunami Pictures

I rarely use this blog to discuss something that’s not related to technology, but someone sent me a link to these satellite before and after pictures of the devastation caused by the massive ocean wave. What this wave did is incredibly awesome with all the meaning that this word used to embody.

Also equally awe-inspiring is what this massive earthquake and displacement of water did to the Earth’s rotation: it caused it to spin 3 microseconds faster!

More horrifying is that the death toll is, at present, nearly 156,000. Relief efforts are staggering as people worldwide have responded well beyond imagination to help those in need.
