Examining the impact of the April earthquake in Sumatra, scientists have found out that one of the eight tectonic plates of the Earth is cracked. On how the split will affect humanity, in the studio of "Morning Russia" said the scientist Alexei Sobisevich.
According to Alexei Sobisevich, the earthquake in Sumatra was very unusual. In the history of instrumental observations of similar happened. The uniqueness of this phenomenon is that it occurs in a zone of collision of two plates as is usually the case, but inside the cooker.
Changes in the dynamics of plate movements, according to Alexei Sobisevich, do not be afraid: it is a sign of the evolution of the planet.
The very unique earthquake in the next hundred years is unlikely to be repeated (for the accumulation of stress, which will lead to the same earthquake, it takes about as much time), but a small earthquake in Sumatra, Indonesia and Thailand will be necessary.
