Earthquake Vs. Moonquake: A Review

Title variants
Languages of publication
The earthquake has most horrific and devastating effects on earth as it causes building collapse, destruction of the communication transportation infrastructure system. It further creates the natural disaster like the landslide, soil liquefaction, tsunamis; sometimes can cause enormous fire incident. There are advanced studies and new technologies are being developed to fully understand the phenomenon of the earthquake and its effect, mitigation process, and early prediction. Other bodies in planet, moon or star also experience quake. The seismometer reading from Apollo mission is still being studied to know more about lunar seismology. This study will review earthquake and moonquake as the general introduction, effects, terminology, characterization and shows the relation between these on the bases of some excellent studies done by researchers.
