Earth’s Inner Core May Have Started Spinning in Opposite Direction

Some big scientific news today as a new study suggests the earth’s inner core may have started spinning in the opposite direction. The analysis led experts to believe that the planet’s inner core temporarily stopped spinning around 2009, and started moving in the opposite direction without anyone noticing. The researchers said this isn’t the first time such a shift has happened. The Earth’s inner core started spinning in a new direction in the early 1970s, and is expected to change directions once again sometime in the 2040s.
