According to British media, scientists are now saying that the Earth’s rotation around its own axis is less than 24 hours because the speed of the Earth’s rotation around its axis has increased in the last 50 years.
Scientists say that for the past half-century, the days have become shorter as the Earth revolves around its axis at a faster rate than usual.
According to the report, official data reveals the fact that in the last fifty years, the speed of the Earth’s rotation around its axis has increased, resulting in a reduction of less than 24 hours a day.
Experts are discussing modifying the seconds to close the gap and reconcile time with the Earth’s rotation on its axis.
According to highly sensitive British government records, the Earth’s rotation on its axis has been completed in less than 24 hours since 1960.
An example is given in this regard. The day of 19 July 2020 was less than 24 hours and 4 minutes, which is the shortest time since the beginning of the record.
