Submission + - Chilean earthquake shortens days (businessweek.com)

ailnlv writes: According to TFA, days just got shorter. In brief, the recent earthquake slightly shifted the Earth's axis by about 8 cm and shortened days by 1.26 microseconds

"The changes can be modeled, though they're difficult to physically detect given their small size, Gross said. Some changes may be more obvious, and islands may have shifted, according to Andreas Rietbrock, a professor of Earth Sciences at the U.K.'s Liverpool University who has studied the area impacted, though not since the latest temblor."
