Earth Rotation: Earth completes rotation in less than 24 hours?

Earth Rotation: Scientists and astronomers have made a shocking disclosure. It is claimed that the earth has started rotating faster than its normal speed. The speed of the Earth’s rotation is so fast that the rotation, which is completed in 24 hours, is being completed before that. According to the information, on June 29, 2022, the Earth took less than 24 hours to complete one revolution on its axis.

Earth completed its spin in 1.59 milliseconds less than 24 hours on June 29 this year.

According to the Independent’s report, until a few years ago, scientists used to say that the Earth’s rotation is slowing down. In view of this, the International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service (IERS) started adding leap seconds for the slow spin. This was done till December 31, 2016. But then it was said that the earth is rotating rapidly. Atomic clocks have also shown that the speed of Earth rotation is accelerating. It can start negative leap second.

Earth has increased its speed very fast in recent times.

Due to the fast motion of the earth in 2020, the month of July was seen as the shortest.
In 1960, July 19 was the shortest day ever measured.

On this day, the Earth completed its rotation in 24 hours before 1.47 milliseconds.
Whereas on July 26 this year, the earth turned around 1.50 milliseconds ago.

According to the report, there is a continuous increase in the speed of the earth. The reason for this can be the melting of glaciers, molten core of the earth and earthquakes. This can also happen due to the continuous changes in the inner and outer layers of the core, oceans, tides or climate. A negative second leap will potentially cause many problems for the IT system.
