Big Brain Experiences First Earthquake
BIG BRAIN EXPERIENCES 1ST EARTHQUAKE!
The building shook and vibrated for about a half minute. The Big Brain arrays were splayed with vertical stacking upon the round table at the Lab's lower level and swayed back and forth but did not fall. The Right side brain was already set next to the arrays and likewise did not topple. The Brain remained stable.
The stability of the Brain is now proven and "earthquake proof" up to
a range between 3 and 5. More intense earthquakes may require special brain measures to be taken. The survivability of the Big Brain during an earthquake was topic discussed in the past. It was accurately predicted to survive a number three.
