A new movement in science.

Prompt –

© 2015, Barbara W. Beacham

Finish the story begins with: “The crew of the Angel Flame received orders to head out.”

The crew of the Angel Flame received orders to head out for more detailed studies. The senior geologist was studying the screen as one of his assistant brought in a newspaper and pointed to a news item – ‘Geophysicists blast their way to the bottom of tectonic plates’, he read ….. Earth has moving plates below the surface is well known, but it is not clear what actually moves the plates. The Angel-flame team has discovered a thin, low-viscosity layer at the base of tectonic plates. They used dynamite on the sea-floor and then studied the plates through high-resolution seismic imaging’.

Turbulence on the screen distracted the scientist, he picked up the communication pad and said, “Captain Miller turn around and try reaching the pacific shore as fast as you can – an underwater quake measuring 12 shall strike the sea floor in a few minutes.”

Their memorial service triggered a movement for responsible science.

  1. It makes me wonder how many “accidents” like that have happened because scientists weren’t responsible. It makes a person really think. Well done, Yarnspinnerr. — Suzanne
