Earth DaysAre Becoming Strangely Longer

Atomic clocks and precision astronomical measurements have shown that days are suddenly becoming longer.

This change has a profound impact on our capacity to keep accurate time as well as other precision technologies such as GPS that we rely on every day.

The rate at which the Earth rotates around its axis has accelerated over the last few decades.

Because of this pattern, our days have been getting shorter, which determines how long a day is.

In June 2022, we will have already beaten the record for the shortest day in the last 50 years.

The gradual acceleration that began in 2020 has oddly slowed. The cause of the increased length of Earth days is yet unknown.

Over millions of years, the Earth's rotation has slowed.
