MC Post 608: 8.8 Quake in Chile May have Shortened our Day.

By 6.8 microseconds.

Not to Mention a Shift in the Earth's FIGURE Axis...

By 2.76 inches.

Earth's figure axis (the axis on which 

Earth's mass is balanced) 


Earth’s figure axis is not the

same as its north-south axis; they 

are offset by about 33 feet.


Science Can Be Daunting...


Tomorrow's  Post:
