What if Earth Stopped Spinning? | #aumsum


It’s AumSum Time. What if Earth Stopped Spinning? It would gain weight. No AumSum. The Earth spins at a speed of 1000 miles-per-hour. Its atmosphere also moves along with it at
a constant speed. If the earth stops spinning suddenly, the
atmosphere would still be in motion. Sending everything on the earth’s surface,
flying into the atmosphere. Now, earth’s spinning generates a centrifugal
force. Which is responsible for the huge bulge of
water around the equator. No spinning means no centrifugal force. This water would migrate towards the poles,
where gravity is the strongest. Leaving behind a giant landmass. Also, remember that, even though the earth
stops spinning. It is still revolving around the sun. This means, we would experience a 6-month
day, followed by 6-month night. Some experts also believe that earth’s rotation
generates its magnetic field. Without rotation, there would be no magnetic
field. To protect us from the harmful solar winds. Making it extremely difficult to survive. What if there was no Gravity on Earth? No Problemo. I will order my burger from space. Oh AumSum. From purely physics point of view. There would be no earth left, as no gravity
means no mass. But, leaving this point aside, let’s see what
else will happen. Oceans, rivers and lakes will float away. Entire atmosphere will vanish, only vacuum
will be left. Everything on the surface of the earth including
humans, cars, rocks, etc. Will become weightless and float away into
space. Things which are rooted into earth like trees,
bridges. And buildings will remain, but not for long. On a funnier note, anybody will be able to
lift heavy weights. Football will become a one kick game. And there will be no need of stairs or elevators. Finally, earth will also start breaking into
chunks as it is held together by gravity. What if all insects disappeared? No worries. I have their photographs. You might think insects are inconsequential,
but the reality is. Without them, there probably would be no life
on earth. The first life to get affected, would be plant
life. Most plants in the world are angiosperms,
that is, flowering plants. Without insects pollinating them, plant life
would gradually disappear. Gradually, birds and mammals feeding on plants
would also disappear. Further, insects are food for many birds,
frogs, reptiles, etc. Without insects, they would also start dying. Then, animals eating those animals would also
start dying. This would ultimately lead to a domino effect. Finally wiping out the top of the food chain,
that is, human beings. Also, don’t be surprised, if you suddenly
see a lot of dead things everywhere. This is because insects are decomposers. Without insects, decomposition process would
take much longer. What if wheels were never invented? No problem. I’ll just use my Private Rocket. Oh AumSum. Wheels are believed to have been invented
almost 5500 years ago. Ever imagined what the world would be like
without wheels? How would you go to school, work or even on
a holiday? Bicycles, cars, steam engines and even planes,
nothing would be possible without the wheels. Yes, horses and sledges would be there. But it would be a super slow and super rough
ride. Not only in transportation, but wheels are
also a major component of the industrial revolution. Elevators, blinds, cranes etc., all have some
form of wheel hidden in them. Now, on adding teeth to wheels, gears were
invented. Clocks, grinders, car engines, bicycles . And
other complex machines work with the help of gears. So, basically, if wheels were never invented. We might still be living the pre-historic way.
