What Would Happen If The Earth Stopped Spinning? | Unveiled

what would happen if the earth stopped spinning It could be possible that one day billions of years from now the earth will standstill But chances are good that other events will occur before that such as the Sun swallowing up the planet With that being said there isn’t a chance that the earth will suddenly stop spinning anytime soon but let’s just assume for a moment that the earth did suddenly stop rotating and Take a look at what would happen to us and the planet Our planet spins at its equator 1,000 miles per hour as it orbits the Sun, but as you get closer to the poles the rotation is slower Without this rotation life as we know it wouldn’t be possible It is said that billions of years ago our planet used to spin much faster than it does now In the beginning of our young solar system an unknown planet or large celestial body collided with the earth and in that collision the Earth’s Alignment and rotation were changed and the moon was formed Since then the Earth’s rotation has been slowing down It is said that the moon used to also spin faster than it does now before it became tidally locked with the earth tidal locking is the name given to the situation when a moon or planetary objects orbital period matches its rotational period Coincidentally it is the same fate that affects every single large moon orbiting a planet a great example of this is our own moon In our early solar system both the earth and the moon rotated independently of each other But the Earth’s gravity grabbed on to the tidal bulges and slowed down the rotation of the moon to compensate for the loss of momentum in the system the moon drifted away from the earth to its current position about 230,000 miles away But moon has the same impact on the earth and those same tidal forces that caused the tides on earth are Slowing down the Earth’s rotation bit by bit and the moon is continuing to drift away a few centimeters a year to compensate There are two different scenarios if the earth just stopped spinning But wasn’t tidal locked to the Sun the planet would experience six months of sunlight and six months of darkness But for the purpose of this mind experiment, let’s take a look at the effects It would have on our planet to be tidally locked to our star the Sun First of all we have to consider the speed of which our planet rotates at the equator which is roughly 1,000 miles per hour a Sudden pause would cause everything on the surface of the earth to suddenly move at a speed of over 1,000 miles per hour 1,600 kilometres per hour in a sideways direction Since the velocity needed to escape the Earth’s gravity is over 24,000 800 miles per hour everything would stay tacked to the Earth’s surface Yet jolted forward Imagine everything suddenly moving across the planet at 1,000 miles per hour. It wouldn’t matter what it was Everything would experience a sideways deceleration of three-quarters of the Earth’s gravity suddenly down would be at an angle of 38 degrees from vertical the force of suddenly stopping would rip buildings right off their foundations and Send them flying across the ground with anything else that isn’t solid bedrock destroying everything in a giant and deadly debris path But that’s not all this would also include the oceans which would suddenly slosh sideways across the planet With waves being miles and miles high moving at the same velocity Imagine tsunamis so high you couldn’t see the top Just a wall of water racing towards you at 1,000 miles per hour Both of these two calamities would be the end of most life as we know it Although the earth would stop spinning the atmosphere would continue to spin at the Earth’s same velocity as well Which would create very high winds and very nasty storms Because the Earth rotates centrifugal force forces the planet to bulge along the equator with no rotation you have no bulge and without that bulge all of the extra water held in place along the equator would go rushing back toward the poles if The earth stops spinning you have to take into consideration that the inner core of the earth is spinning at a faster rate Just because the surface has slowed down doesn’t mean the core of the earth has stopped to Our highly volcanic planet might erupt in ways we never imagined as the tectonic forces above and below enter into a new conflict Supervolcanoes would likely erupt across the entire planet Our tidally locked earth would have half of the planet always facing the Sun and the other half would be in permanent darkness Currently our planet is in what is called a Goldilocks zone or? Habitable zone where it is the perfect distance from our Sun in order to support life There might still be places on earth where the climate would be habitable but on the two extreme sides it might prove difficult for life to survive assuming that anything survived the previous catastrophes if There were any appreciable amount of life left on the surface of the planet It would now have to survive in the Twilight strip of land between the two halves We are far enough away from our star that the part of the earth That would be facing the Sun wouldn’t start to burn or turn to ashes overnight however the atmosphere on the hot side of the planet would start to erode the portion of the earth always in the direct sunlight would receive more direct sunlight Resulting in more heat and these high temperatures would cause strong rain and an increase of weathering normal weathering regulates the climate on the earth But now that you have one side of the planet hotter and another side cooler and on the hot side Atmospheric gases would build up and create even more heat. This is called the runaway greenhouse effect Clouds of gas could significantly increase the temperature so that the oceans would boil much like what has happened to Venus The middle of the planet facing the Sun on its equator or the sub stellar point would end up so hot That almost nothing could survive The cold side of the planet on the other hand would have a different situation The loss of the sun’s heat on the dark side of the earth would turn the atmosphere into a dense gas Then condense into a liquid, and then further condense into solid ice of Course it is doubtful that the atmosphere on the dark side of the planet would turn into a solid form Instead it would keep condensing and creating a vacuum Which would pull air from the hot side of the planet where the gases in the atmosphere would be expanding? With this happening it might be possible that the atmosphere would make the planet livable But the storms that would come from this exchange of hot and cold air would be unimaginable There would be super storms on both sides of the planet With wind being strong enough to strip the very rock and he wrote it into sand The next thing that would likely happen is that the magnetic field of the earth would stop regenerating and slowly decay over time The reason for this is because the magnetic field of the earth is generated by a dynamo effect that involves its rotation Our magnetic field plays a huge role in keeping our atmosphere intact and this magnetic field also protects the earth from cosmic rays Where would this leave humanity? we are a very adaptable species that has seemed to survive other catastrophes and Even though we have powerful Technology being able to survive on a planet that has stopped spinning and is tidally locked to the Sun would be a great challenge We would be able to control our environment to a degree by moving underground But growing food in such conditions may be difficult. However. You shouldn’t worry about this happening anytime soon as physicists Have predicted it would be a billion years from now at the current rate Let us know what you would do and how you would face these new challenges in the comments below You

  1. No they will survive remember we kill our planet by evolve our nation but I 1 billion year they will create something to stop that or make space ship or thing or live in other planet or à big shield that protection the world

  2. its funny this video is about the handbrake being pulled and the earth stopped spinning suddenly but what about a gradual stop

  3. when the magnetic poles shift its been said by scientists that the earth will stop then for a time,and its already speeding towwards that…

  4. This video is brought to you by the free masons, the world doesn't spin, use common sense!! The planet is a flat plane.

  5. The moon is 230,000,000 thousand miles away . . . FACT CHECK that’s 6 0’s . . . I think that means 230,000,000 million

  6. i believe that god made this world for us to take care of and use it as our home. but people litter, dump oil in oceans, and let’s not forget about humanity. we all treat each other like garbage. everyone is greedy. it’s our job to take care of our home god created especially for us.

  7. So lemme explain
    When it's cold we're on the cold side
    And then when it's hot we're on the hot side oh and when it's spring we're in the middle side (:
    Smart am I?

  8. hi person of 2119, i don’t think i will be alive then but i hope the earth is better now because at the minute it is dying, from, your grandmother

  9. Everybody just try to save this planet and all the nice poeple and the universe STOP LITTERINGthats why theres always rain and that it's always dull just please SAVE THE WORLD,UNIVERSE,OCEONS,ANIMALS, AND US please just work together and be a team and be successful so then we dont die (I'm sorry earth😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭👋👋😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢)

  10. your rite this is
    going to happen
    when we are dead
    cool fuzzy nuts tv
    but i dont wont to die
    but who care because
    evry body is going to die

  11. But you can take a deep breathe at remember that, before this happens we will all be dead, but don’t be scared we will die peacefully (for most of us.

  12. I’m from the future.

    We Humans created a powerful engine called project xz300-vhp400 that spins the hearth. 🌎 🛸

  13. anyone else notice that at 1:46 he said 240 thousand but the number was 240 million? also anyone watching in 2019 ?

  14. I'm watching this in 2019 unveiled said that the 🌎 will stop spinning after billions of years but I'm still scared 😨 for the earth to stop spinning

  15. A billion years seems a big number now untill it will reach that point and it happens

    People in a billion years to come if you reading this be strong my people

  16. Half would hot half would be cold..all those billions of destructive inhumans and subbumans would kick the bucket 😂😤😅😁😄😹

  17. earth is part of sun , after cooling billions of yeras , life formed , after sun cools ie… billions of years later , earth like atmosphere is formed on sun

  18. Nothing will happen – the earth is everything that makes it up, so stopping the spin means everything stopped revolving about the center, so nothing will happen

  19. I made the earth stop spinning. and then sun turn red. And I got sun burnt. Then us Gov had two planes that came to my town. Then I put pistol in my pocket and then helicopter flew in

  20. No anythings happened when you have a time to prayed for that god loves us👆so whatever happened God can also fix the situation of us❤👆🙏Gods love us❤…amen🙏god bless🌈

  21. This is about 8 – 10 Years away! The Bible says this will take place at the 2nd Coming of Jesus at the Battle of Armageddon, Jesus comes at the opening of the 6th Seal Rev 6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

    Rev 6:13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

    Rev 6:14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

    Rev 6:15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;

    Rev 6:16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:

    Rev 6:17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? Jesus comes between the 6th and 7 th Plaque of the Wrath of God . Rev 16:15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.

    Rev 16:16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

    Rev 16:17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.

    Rev 16:18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.

    Rev 16:19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.

    Rev 16:20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.

    Rev 16:21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

  22. Fedeli credenti di ogni fede prendete un paio di metri di corda e' v'impiccate che non servite piu' neanche ai peggiori porci di questo mondo infame

  23. I understand now that moon is the life killer in the far future because it slows down the earth rotation. Why do we like it then?

  24. 'The Man Who Could Work Miracles,' an HG Wells story made into a movie in 1936. One of the final scenes of the movie includes the 'miracle' of the man ordering the earth to stop spinning. It didn't end well.
