    Another reason to keep NASA around...






    "...I'm also proud to report to you that NASA is putting our technology to work
    in support of federal tsunami recovery and relief efforts. Using satellites
    and instruments from our Earth Observing System, we are producing data to
    assist in the ongoing humanitarian efforts. For example, NASA worked to
    provide MODIS and EO-1 Hyperion sensor data collections and historical data
    to the U.S. Navy to help them safely bring ships involved in the relief
    effort into ports damaged by debris and sediments. Additionally, the
    information provided by our satellites is being used to investigate the
    event and document the devastation caused by the tsunami. This research
    will aid in the future development of tsunami and earthquake predictive models
    and warning systems..."

    In Japan they have one that goes "hey 100 million people here comes the tsunami". And it works! One to two hours warning to back off a click from the beach? You could do it in a wheelchair!.........Rich

    I saw in the news they knew about it in other countries. Why didn´t they say anything? Obvious reasons.

    Because the countries that were hit, are poor.. and I dont think they had any type of way to mass warn the people.

    You are right but they had two hours. One screaming chinese guy eating noodles would do the trick. The government doesn´t want the whole country freaking out so a few people must die.
