    Chilean Earthquake Shortened Earth’s Days

    The 8.8 earthquake that hit Chile may have shortened a day on earth by 1.26 microseconds. All the moving rock and mass and stuff actually shifted the Earth’s axis by 3 inches, which then affects how quickly the Earth rotates. FYI: we also lost 6.8 microseconds in the 2004 earthquake/tsunami combo. End days.
