The moon is slowly shrinking over time, which is causing wrinkles in its crust and moonquakes, according to photos captured by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. This is a view of the Taurus-Littrow valley and its cliffs, explored by Apollo 17 astronauts. Unlike Earth, the moon doesn't have tectonic plates. Instead, as the moon's interior has cooled over the last several hundred million years, it has caused the surface to wrinkle as it shrinks. Unlike the flexible skin of a grape when it shrinks into a raisin, the moon's brittle crust breaks. This creates stair-step cliffs called thrust faults as part of the crust is pushed up and over another close part of the crust. There are now thousands of cliffs scattered across the moon's surface, averaging a few miles long and tens of yards high. The orbiter has taken photos of more than 3,500 of them since 2009. In 1972, Apollo 17 astronauts Eugene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt had to ascend one of these cliffs, the Lee-Lincoln fault … [Read more...] about Earth’s moon is shrinking and quaking, study says

With more than a billion subscribers, India is one of the biggest mobile markets - what went wrong? One of India's biggest telecoms firms, Vodafone India, has posted record second quarter losses of 510bn rupees ($7bn; £5.4bn) further exacerbating fears about the state of the industry. Economist Vivek Kaul explains further. What has caused these losses in such a big market? With more than a billion mobile subscribers, India is one of the world's biggest telecoms markets. But there are two reasons for this bloodbath. The first is that for many years while the prices of telephone calls fell, data prices continued to remain high. However, with the entry of Reliance Jio three years ago, this entirely changed. The company slashed data prices and, in the process, managed to change what was essentially a voice market into a data market. This resulted in India ending up with the cheapest mobile data in the world. But this put massive pressure on the players already in the market. … [Read more...] about How did Vodafone lose $7bn in India in just one quarter?
