Chile Earthquake Moved Earth Off Axis Shortened Days

RegisterChile Earthquake Earth Axis 2010 and a Bizarre Chance of Shortened Days. NASA scientists have revealed a fact that is shocking the world. Saturdayís earthquake in Chile, which also prompted a small tsunami in Hawaii, moved the earth off its axis. What does it mean? Well, moving earth off its axis causes our time to be shorted by about 1.26 microseconds.

Itís shocking, but true that the 8.8 quake moved the earth off its axis by about 3 inches. This is an incredible length considering the size of our planet. Itís kind of scary to think what a series of these types of quakes would do to change the landscape of our planet.

Scientists are quick to point out that the moving of the earth off its axis isnít enough to change our seasons. It would take far more than the Chilean quake to make alterations in our weather patterns, as earthís tilt is what determines the seasons.

The quake in Chile has killed over 700 people and has wreaked havoc on the Latin American country. There are numerous reports of looting and general chaos and violence, as the effects of the quake have displaced over a million people.
