        Making a Seismometer

        For anyone who has never experienced an earthquake, it is very hard to imagine the ground moving beneath your feet. But that's exactly what happens when huge sections of Earth's crust crack or slip past one another. The results can range from nearly imperceptible to totally devastating. In this adapted video segment, ZOOM cast members demonstrate how to make a seismometer, the instrument scientists use to measure Earth's big and small vibrations.
