World's largest quake simulator opened to public

    What is claimed to be the world's largest earthquake simulator -- capable of artificially generating tremors of intensity levels greater than the 1995 Great Hanshin Earthquake -- is opened to the public Oct. 8. The simulator was unveiled at a shipyard in Shimonoseki, Yamaguchi Prefecture, western Japan, operated by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. The company built the machine at the request of the Science and Technology Agency's National Research Institute for Disaster Prevention.
