Our Planet Earth May Be Spinning Faster Than It Has In Over 50 Years

Our planet could orbit more than 50 years!
Scientists believe that every day for the past 5 years due to changes in the speed of global rotation, it is shorter than 24 hours a day.

According to the Daily Mail, starting in 2020, there will be less than 24 hours a day. In fact, July 19, 2020, is the shortest day since market scientists began collecting data from scientists in the 1960s.

July 19, 2020, 1.4602 millimeters shorter than the usual 24 hours. This is in stark contrast to previous records, which took more than 24 hours to complete.

In July 2020, the International Circulation and Reference System Service (IERS) announced in December 2020 that no “leap seconds” would be added to the world’s official timetable.
Jumping means adjusting the time of the second. According to IERS, 27 days of jumping seconds have been added since the 1970s. The second addition to the jump took place on December 31, 2016.

Jumping seconds are added on the last day of June or December. This means that the next potential-jump time is June 20, 2021.
A 2015 study suggested that this change in global circulation could be due to global warming. Published in the Advances in Science, he argues that the melting of glaciers is partly responsible for the rapid rotation of the Earth on its own axis.

Scientists have averaged that the days are 24 hours shorter than 0.5 seconds. Scientists around the world are considering deleting a second. The so-called “negative jump is the second,” which is designed to calculate change and synchronize the passage of time with the rotation of the earth. In order to keep satellites and other communication devices in sync, it is very important to keep atomic time in sync with solar time.
