Can't Wrap My Head Around Space.......

4 replies • Last post

Hiya CL Members,

With all the commotion going on in Japan i learned the axis was thrown off by 10"! As a result we are suppose to lose one millionth of a second per day. Now i know that will take centuries before it will show. But what the heck does that mean?? What happens when we lose say 1000 hours?

I can't believe the whole world didn't feel it if it had that kind of impact on earth. Scientists are reporting not to worry but it makes me wonder.......The Japan news media kept the seriousness of the nuclear leak from citizens not to cause mass hysteria. If the earth is in deep trouble would they ever tell us anyway?

We would probably all freak if we knew some of the things the gov withholds from us.

No wonder I've been waking up tired, I'm getting a millisecond less sleep every day!

Seriously though it must have made the Earth spin slightly faster if the day is shorter. I guess after a million days then all the clocks would be out by one second. Maybe they will have to do a leap second in a few thousand years.

I read that the main island of Japan was moved by 3 metres by the earthquake. That is incredible. But not surprising when you see something like this video. Take a good look at those buildings at the start because after a few minutes they are all gone. You can see some poor person on the roof of one of them about 0:37 in (top left of the screen).

Very scary stuff. And what is amazing is who ever filmed that, diligently kept the camera rolling without losing complete composure. By the likes of it he certainly looks like he could of have been washed away himself. Very brave man.

He certainly could have. But what else could he do? All he could do is wait and see if the building he's standing on can hold up. You're completely powerless in that situation.
