Now the Earth has started moving fast on its axis, scientists are shocked! Click here to know more


Scientists keep doing some research about the Earth and now scientists have made a disclosure. According to this, the earth is now rotating faster on its axis than in the last 50 years. Due to the change in speed in the last 5 decades, every day on the earth has started decreasing by 24 hours.

You will be surprised to know that every year from the year 2020, the earth is rotating on its axis in less than 24 hours. After 1960, many data about the speed of the Earth was collected by scientists. According to this collected data, 19 July 2020 proved to be the shortest day.

According to the data collected by scientists of the Paris-based International Earth Rotation Service, the day of July 19, 2020, was 1.46 milliseconds less than 24 hours. These records have been broken a total of 28 times in the last 12 months.

Now a day has been reduced from a valid 24 hours to 0.5 seconds. This process is called 'negative leap second'.

What will be the problem due to the fast movement of the

Earth, along with the speed of the Earth, our standards of time are also fixed. If there are major changes in the speed of the Earth, then the calculation of time will also have to change.

Not only this, if the speed of the earth changes then our communication system can also face problems. Because satellites and communication devices are set according to solar time. These times are fixed according to the position of stars, moon, and sun.

For information, tell that 27 leap seconds have been added since 1970. This has to be done due to the changes in the speed of the earth. The leap second was last added on 31 December 2016.
