Okay, so it’s not exactly LOST style time travel, but scientists say that the earthquake in Chile likely shifted the Earth’s axis about 3 inches – shortening the length of our day by 1.26 microseconds.
Doesn’t that just blow your mind? Talk about global impact!
(Not to mention, of course, the global emotional impact we all feel when a disaster like this occurs. Remember, you can always help with disasters like the Chile earthquake by making a gift to the Red Cross International Response Fund.)
