What Would Happen If Earth Started To Spin Faster?


It wasn’t actually that long ago that people believed the sun moved around the Earth. Well, today we know it’s the Earth that goes around the sun and that it takes 365 days to complete one orbit. During that time, our planet completes one full revolution every 24 hours. That means it’s spinning at speeds that can reach upwards of 1000 mph - depending on where you are standing. Sure, you don’t feel it, but this rotational speed plays a huge part in our lives. If it was faster or slower than it currently is, our world would change. This left us wondering - what would happen if the Earth suddenly started to spin faster? The answer isn’t good but we’ll let you find that out yourself in our latest video.
