The introduction of military tanks markedly changed the way humans wage war. Their sheer mass is psychologically intimidating, almost as if they tap into our primal fears of immense predatory animals. In addition, they are clearly designed to for human slaughter while protecting those inflicting the harm. It’s no wonder images of tanks seem haunting.

 Moonquakes

Once in a while, we experience tremors/quakes on earth which could seem rather unlikely to occur on the moon given that it’s far away and gravitational pull on earth and the moon are obscenely different. The moonquakes could be caused by meteorite impacts or by the intensity of the suns heat. These quakes on the moon according to NASA create an extraordinary effect that makes the moon ring like a bell.
