Like a scene out of the Hollywood blockbuster film The Core, the Earth’s core has stopped spinning and might be reversing, according to an analysis published on Monday in Nature Geoscience.
The Earth’s core is on pause and could start spinning in the other direction, which can alter the length of a day and the planet’s electromagnetic field, adding to the issue.
According to mainstream science, the Earth’s core is a solid metal sphere about seventy percent the size of the moon and can affect life on Earth significantly.
In 2022, Shepard Ambellas, the host of the Shepard Ambellas Show, was quick to the punch, pointing out several times in previous broadcasts that the days seem shorter in length, which makes it feel like time is speeding up. Shockingly, scientists have confirmed Ambellas’s speculation and, as a result, plan to modify the length of a day at some point in the future.
However, before the Earth’s core had nearly stopped in 2009, it slowed considerably, creating a magnetic braking effect. Scientists believe the core might be reversing, which could be part of a 60-70 year cycle.
Peking University researchers Yi Yang and Xiaodong Song have found evidence the Earth’s core has become nearly stationary over the past decade and could reverse at any time.
“There are two major forces acting on the inner core,” wrote the researchers. “One is the electromagnetic force. The Earth’s magnetic field is generated by fluid motion in the outer core. The magnetic field acting on the metallic inner core is expected to drive the inner core to rotate by electromagnetic coupling. The other is gravity force. The mantle and inner core are both highly heterogeneous, so the gravity between their structures tends to drag the inner core to the position of gravitational equilibrium, so called gravitational coupling.”
“If the two forces are not balanced out, the inner core will accelerate or decelerate,” added the scientists. “Both the magnetic field and the Earth’s rotation have a strong periodicity of 60-70 years. We believe that the proposed 70-year oscillation of the inner core is driven by the electromagnetic and gravitational forces.”
What will happen now that the core of the Earth has stopped and might reverse?
The Shepard Ambellas Show airs weekdays at 7 pm EST/6C on ATN.live.
