  • Is it a sign of the apocalypse?

Over the years, various theories have emerged about the supposed end of the world, however many have come to believe that this will never happen. Since the supposed dates the apocalypse was supposed to arrive were uneventful, now there is more frightening news.

According to D.W., this summer experts have recorded something truly terrifying. It has been reported that we had the shortest day in history. This event has many scared because they think that the end of the world is probably closer than we think.

This strange event apparently occurred thanks to the fact that the Earth is rotating faster than normal, causing a day to be shorter than the usual 24 hours. This was possibly due to a wobble in the poles of the planet which made it complete a single turn in a fraction of a second less.

This strange phenomenon occurred on July 26. They say that day was 1.50 milliseconds shorter than 24 hours. The normal of any given day is 1.59 milliseconds less than 86,400 seconds, that is, exactly 24 hours.

Experts have said that the planet has been spinning faster in recent years. In 2020 the Earth saw its shortest month ever measured. In that year, July 19 was the shortest day in history.

It was not until this year when the record for the fastest rotation was broken. Despite the increases in speed, the Earth’s rotation has been slowing overall. Every century, it takes a couple of milliseconds or so longer to complete a rotation. Filed Under: Earth spins faster

Some experts suggest that the reason for the trend of shorter days could be related to the Chandler wobble, a small deviation in the axis of the Earth’s rotation. «The normal amplitude of the Chandler wobble is about three to four meters at the Earth’s surface,» said Dr. Zotov, according to DW.

It should be remembered that this phenomenon was first detected in the late 1880s, when the astronomer Seth Carlo Chandler observed that the poles wobbled over a period of 14 months. But if the rapid turnover continues, it could lead to the introduction of the first additional negative second in history. Filed Under: Earth spins faster
