Earth Speeding Up... May Require Leap Second

https://nypost.com/2022/08/01/scientists-baffled-as-earth-spins-faster-than-usual/

 

Earth's rotation speed has been picking up over the past half century for reasons not fully understood. This last June 29th Earth had the shortest day ever recorded a full 1.59 milliseconds shorter than 24 hours

 

While it may seem extremely trivial, these differences add up over years and atomic clocks are extremely precise and they are now saying if fast rotation continues we may need the first ever negative leap second, meaning our clocks would skip a second

 

It's also believed a leap second could be challenging to coordinate into integrated IT systems

Weird 'cause since the formation of the Moon, Earth's rotation has been slowing (from 8hr days to 24hr days over ~4 billion years)...now it's speeding up? :enigma:

The end times are here :enigma:

I'd do anything to numb the flame
