Summary:
NASA is inviting all social media users to take a selfie of themselves alongside nature and to post it to Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Instagram, or Google Plus with the hashtag #globalselfie. NASA's goal is to crowd-source a collection of snapshots of the earth, ground-up, that will be used to create one "unique mosaic of the Blue Marble." This image will be available to all in May. Since this is probably one of the few times posting a selfie to Twitter won't be embarrassing, we suggest you give it a go for a good cause. Video provided by TheStreet

But even then, people have just five seconds after the warning comes to brace themselves. Cutting straight to the chase, thousands of detection stations around the world, international networks, decades of research -- why can't we predict earthquakes yet? Danijel Schorlemmer: Well, even though we have thousands of stations, we have a big problem. We only measure the signals on the earth’s surface. Unlike in meteorology, where you can measure all the values you’re interested in, like humidity, wind-speed and so on in 3-D, we only see the earth’s surface. We cannot make measurements in the earth, which would be very important to understand what’s going on. And we’re also lacking a precursor phenomenon, a
