Data shows the former 24-hour daily rotation is decreasing gradually as the Earth is spinning faster.
Atomic Clock Scientists are suggesting to reduce the duration of a minute by 1 second, making it only 59 seconds = 1 minute.
Scientists observed that the shortest day in 2020 is 28 times shorter than the shortest day in 2005.
This shortening phenomenal has been going for some time.
2021’s prediction is that it will be 19 milli-seconds shorter than the average year.
The tiny difference may not be a big deal for peoples’ daily routine, but it is critical for science and technology as satellite communication and navigation systems relay heavily on the precision of a fraction of a second.
No conclusive outcome of the change has been announced as of yet.
