Celebrate National Earth’s Rotation Day with the LED World Globe
We’re celebrating National Earth’s Rotation Day today!
On this day, January 8 in 1951, French physicist Leon Foucault demonstrated how the earth rotates on its axis. While this is basic to kids nowadays, it took scientists and philosophers years for scientists and philosophers years to work out how the earth moves around the sun.
In 1851, Foucault showed the world how the earth rotates using a simple pendulum experiment.
Today, Foucault’s pendulums are a staple in science museums around the globe. If there’s a science museum near you, it’s highly likely that they have a Foucault pendulum somewhere. Pretty cool, right?
