(ORDO NEWS) — Scientists have found an interesting fact. It turned out that the Earth makes a complete revolution on its axis in less than 24 hours. Now the new length of the day is only 23 hours 56 minutes and 4 seconds.
The speed of the earth’s rotation has increased over the past 50 years. This is reported by Science Focus.
Scientists attribute the increase in the speed of rotation of our planet to several factors. The first is the melting of glaciers due to global warming. Glacier water runs to the equator, which provokes acceleration.
Another possible reason for such anomalous acceleration is seismic activity and the Earth’s magnetic field. Humanity shouldn’t worry, experts told why. Firstly. Acceleration will not affect people’s daily life in any way. Secondly, such phenomena have already occurred in the entire history of the planet’s existence, they are temporary and do not pose a threat.
Scientists are sure that in order for a person to feel any changes, such phenomena must continue for millennia. Minor changes may affect the operation of high frequency devices, but these are temporary and easily removable interruptions.
According to forecasts of experts, the planet will soon slow down again and the length of the day will be the usual 24 hours.
