‘Longest year’ 2020 broke the record for shortest year

With constant problems around the world 2020 year was shorter than previous years. The world started spinning faster than it has been in decades.

Earth spun around its axis 1.5 milliseconds faster

2020 in the year 1960since fastest 28 days took place. This has resulted in the shortest day ever documented. 1.5 milliseconds The faster spinning world broke the record for July 5, 2005, the shortest day before.


Scientists, It does not consider it abnormal that the earth’s days are slightly longer or shorter than average due to the activity of the planet’s molten core, oceans, and atmosphere. But, TimeAndDate.comAccording to him, a large number of fast-paced days in 2020 could be a sign that the earth’s rotation is generally accelerating.

Scientists who monitor the rotation speed of the earth, 2021He predicts that will be even shorter. Of an average day 0.05 milliseconds Scientists who think it will shorten, a standard day 1.5 milliseconds It points out to be shorter. In the light of these data, the total of shorter days in a total year 19 milliseconds waiting for him to open.

In addition, Peter Whibberley, a physicist from the UK National Physical Laboratory, told The Telegraph on the subject, “The world is currently spinning faster than any time in the last 50 years.“He said.

As a result of all these developments, 2020 was shorter compared to other years, what do you think about this issue?
