Japan Quake moved Earth on its Axis and moved the island by 8 Feet

As many of you will know, several days ago a massive earthquake struck off the coast of Japan sending a huge tsunami across the islands. The extent of the damage is huge with tens of thousands still missing and an unfolding humanitarian disaster as Japan struggles to cope with the homeless and hungry.
At the same time the quake damaged the nuclear plants at Fukushima, where a huge explosion yesterday may have set of a sub critical meltdown in one of the reactors.

New data from GPS and GSI also seems to indicate that the huge Earthquake did more than just devistate the Japanese mainland. It appears that it was so big it moved the islands of Japan by up to 8 feet. The earhquake, caused by the shifing of the 'ring of fire' techtonic plates by more than 18m in an area 250 miles by 100 miles, may also have shifted the globe on its axis by nearly 4 inches.
Images released by NASA show Japan's northeast coast before, left, and after flooding from the quake-induced tsunami.
