In 2015, on April 25, 2015, a 7.9 magnitude earthquake rocked Nepal.
Jon Kedrowski was in Mount Everest Basecamp at 17,500'. Everybody knew that the climbing season was over after the earthquake happened. The nearly two-minute long earthquake killed 20 people in basecamp and another 10,000 throughout Nepal. Before Kedrowski could leave Nepal, he had some earthquake data to collect for the US Geological survey.
