Almost every one of us has the thought of Apocalypse. Moreover, we always think about the possible ways through which the apocalypse will strike us. So, it must be in the mind of so many of us, what will happen if the earth stops spinning. Well, we have brought you what you were looking for and that are the 10 things that will happen if the earth stops spinning.
1. Two Oceans And Only One Continent
It is the centrifugal force that keeps the water collected near the equator. The stop in earth’s movement will cause the water to redistribute into two oceans and entire land will get together to form a gigantic continent on the equator.
2. Hurricanes, Earthquakes And Volcanic Eruptions
The movement of the earth makes the balance. Hence, it is certain that if earth stops, the balance will be disturbed and due to this disturbance, there will be high kinetic energy that will cause earthquakes, hurricanes and volcanic eruptions.
3. Earth’s Magnetic Field Will Disappear
Sten Odenwald states, if earth stops rotating then its magnetic field will disappear. The magnetic field protects us from the dangerous radiation waves and solar wind.
4. Gigantic Tidal Waves
The momentum will cause the water bodies to move which will generate huge tidal waves.
5. Humans Need To Reside Underground In Order To Survive
It is hard for the humans to survive if earth stops moving. Moreover, if they survive, they will need to reside underground to avoid radiation.
6. Six Months Long Day And Six Months Long Night
We all know earth revolves around the sun while also rotating on its axis. According to NASA, If earth completely stops rotating on its axis but keep on revolving around the sun then there will be a 6 months day and 6 months nights.
7. Objects Will Fly Towards East
Earth revolves on its axis at high speed which maintains the balance. However, Sten Odenwald says, if earth stops spinning then everything will start flying towards east at a speed of 800-1000 mph.
8. Moon Will Fall On Earth
According to Prof. of Stanford University, Vaughan Pratt, the Moon would slow down if earth’s rotation stops, the movement of the moon will stop. Moreover, it will fall on earth. However, this is a slow process that will take a long time.
9. Earth Will Turn Into A Perfect Sphere
Perhaps, the earth seems spherical but it is not completely spherical. It is a bit flattened on the poles and slightly bulged on the equator. According to Prof. Etienne Ghys, the planet will become spherical if it stops moving.
10. Powerful Wind
As the earth will become still, then the atmosphere will not be balanced. And, then we will feel immensely powerful wind estimated to have a speed more than 1100 mph.
Well, NASA has cleared that earth’s rotation will not stop for next few billion years. Want to know how earth has changed in last 100 years, check out here.
