Is the Earth's rotation slows down?

The team of researchers from the University of Durham, England, doing research on the various events of the eclipse and other space events in the 27th century. This study reveals new information about the Earth's rotation slows down from time to time.

Therefore, one-day duration of 24 hours has possibility to change. Although there is likely to rise, but in addition to requiring a very long time in order to really have an effect for life. That's expressed by the leader of the study, Leslie Morrison, the Earth rotation slows down was very long process.

In a period of 2,700 years, the slowing of the Earth's rotation about two milliseconds. Therefore, it takes 6.7 million years to slow down for a minute. To make one day amounts 25 hours, it took 200 years.

As quoted of Sky News on Wednesday, December 7, 2016, the data obtained from the study of eclipses facts and events space since 720 BC to 2015. The data obtained break the Morrison's thought previously which was estimates slowing the Earth's rotation is greater than the data. Previously expected to take 5.2 million years to add one minute rotation.

"The data disclosed previously only the estimation, because the geophysical forces that made the Earth rotates does not move in a constant state," said Morrison.

The Earth's rotation is also influenced by several factors from within the Earth. Polar surface changes, electromagnetic activity of the Earth's core and the surface of the sea water into some of the factors that affect the Earth's rotation. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | SKY NEWS]
