Eruption of Tonga may provide clues to planet formation

A large volcanic eruption that shook Tonga last week sent a near-sonic shock wave and a tsunami across the Pacific Ocean. And now, one expert says it may provide valuable clues about the formation of other planets. They said, “Blown away, there are no more islands.” “It’s one of NASA’s chief scientists, James Garvin, who says he’s been studying volcanoes for seven years. Now they’re looking at the remains of the island. Hunga Tonga and Hunga Ha’apai.” , Calculated using a fairly classical technique to explosively fragment the released mass and energy. Stack it up, crush it into small pieces, throw it as ash, or steam it up to hundreds of thousands of feet. So we did that calculation and got a number in the same range as the explosion. A small asteroid that collides with Earth-about 10 meters, a megaton of TNT or equivalent-to a larger one. Hunga-Tonga-Hunga-Ha’apai volcano is located in the seismically active ring of fire. The January 15 eruption was so powerful that it was audible. A huge cloud of ash can be seen from space a thousand miles away. By studying the impact of these volcanoes on Earth, Garvin says, we can find out what happened to other planets. It is better preserved on planets such as Mars, the Moon, and Venus. So we use the Earth as a training ground and we know from such places to other planets that may have oceans, volcanoes, or eruptions underwater. Project that you are.
