A Strong Earthquake Turned a High-Powered Telescope Into a Seismograph
Scientists have gotten awfully good at the business of seismography.

A seismograph is currently at work on Mars, as part of the suite of instruments carried by NASA’s InSight lander. Now, science has stumbled across a new — and inadvertent — kind of seismography, with earthquakes recorded not by tracings on a screen or a paper str...
