Retrofitting old or cheap houses with earthquake protection is often expensive and laborious. What if we could save whole streets at a time?
How studying the injection technique involved in fracking also tells us something about earthquakes.
The magnitude 7.3 earthquake that hit Nepal this week should be classed as an aftershock rather than a second earthquake.
Politics in Nepal will hinder relief and recovery efforts following the earthquake and its aftershocks. But look at it the other way around. Could the disaster help to resolve political problems?
