Earth is spinning faster than usual and had the shortest day ever.
Scientists say the Earth is spinning faster and has recently recorded its shortest day. June 29, 2022 was
1.59 milliseconds short of the average day, scientist Leonid Zotov told CBS News. The average length of a day is 24 hours or 86,400 seconds.
But in recent years, Earth's rotation has accelerated, shortening some days by milliseconds. "Earth has started accelerating
since 2016 and recently published a study on what might be causing changes in Earth's rotation," said Zotov,
who works for Lomonosov Moscow State University. Rotates faster than in 2021 and 2020." Zotov and his colleagues believe that,
Earth's tides may have caused the fluctuations. The universal unit of time measurement on Earth, atomic time, may need to alter,
he claims, even though each day is not getting any shorter.
