    Default The earth's rotation slows down minutely at times, apparently....

    ...who knew? And now scientists think this minuscule slowing of the earth's rotation is related to increased earthquake activity. Fascinating article - as are some of the comments beneath it, for example:

    "I'm still getting over the discovery last month that gold and platinum are only produced in the catastrophic collisions of two neutron stars (apparently around six or so solid Earth's worth of gold each time it happens)."

    And:

    "While we're on the subject - when white dwarf stars cool down, their carbon crystallizes into Earth-sized diamonds"

    But the question is, why does it slow down periodically? Does anyone on here know?
