Let’s look at the viral message above stepwise

Firstly, The official web site sponsored by the USGS Earthquake Hazards Program says NO to possibilities of prediction –

“Can scientists predict earthquakes?

No, and it is unlikely they will ever be able to predict them. Scientists have tried many different ways of predicting earthquakes, but none have been successful. On any particular fault, scientists know there will be another earthquake sometime in the future, but they have no way of telling when it will happen.”

Secondly, the message uses www.nasaalert.com as source, asking to check on the site.

The website doesn’t exist, opening it leads to another – www.alertsondemand.com which too doesn’t open, only domain name changes.

This domain name has nothing to do with NASA
