(ORDO NEWS) — Why the Earth pulsates every 26 seconds, and scientists cannot explain it despite 60 years of research.
In the early 1960s, a geologist named Jack Oliver first documented the pulse of the earth, also known as “microseism”.
Oliver, who was working at the Lamont-Doherty Geological Observatory at Columbia University at the time, heard the noise but did not have modern seismic stations at his disposal.
Since then, scientists have spent a lot of time listening to the pulse of the earth and even figured out where it sounds from: “a part of the Gulf of Guinea called Bonnie Bay.”
The pulse of the Earth is a mystery. Despite many hypotheses, none has been able to explain this “breathing of the Earth”.
