Rotating Events in Our Time

Our daily schedule is shaped by many spin-related events, such as the rotation of the planets around the sun or shift workers shifting between evening and day shifts. Some occur every day and some are unpredictable and irregular.

One of these more frequent periodic events is precessionthe Earth’s cyclical wobble around its axis of rotation. It’s like a spinny, slightly off-center toy top. The inclination of the axis in relation to fixed stars (inertial space) has a cycle of 25,771.5 years. This is also the reason why fun park excursions like Ferris wheels and carousels have to be constructed using a solid side-toside bar referred to as an axle. Another typical event that rotates is the Coriolis effect that is a mystical push over a freely going body system that alters its revolving movements on an atmospheric scale. This is responsible for a wide variety of weather patterns such as the alternating direction of rotation of cyclones that occur in the Upper and Southern hemispheres.

Many people are unaware of the fact that the speed at which our planet changes can be altered. As a result, the days can be longer or shorter than expected. The Atomic clocks that keep the same time for all, must be tuned periodically. This type of change is referred to a leap second, and this article will discuss how it happens and what it means to our daily lives.
