Summary
In 2011, the northeastern seaboard of Japan was devastated by a magnitude 9 earthquake. Within 30 minutes, a giant tsunami slammed ashore and wiped away hundreds of thousands of homes and close to 20,000 lives. David travels to Sendai, the city nearest the epicenter of the quake, where he witnesses the dynamic relationship between science and nature. This place has a long history of monitoring earthquakes because it is a highly active seismic region. Here, at their sophisticated deep earth seismic monitoring lab, David learns that the equipment was not designed to measure a quake over an 8 on the Richter scale. The Tohoku earthquake was a grave lesson in humility, and one that revealed the limits of seismic science. David presents his quest for answers to the tragedy, and finds that innovative technology and the re-assessment of conventional thinking might turn a cataclysm into a blueprint for the future
