Behind imagination if the earth stops spinning
People have always been fascinated by what would become of Earth and us if something disastrous happened. If the earth stopped spinning, all objects would fly east at high speed with their own momentum. According to NASA, the speed at the equator would be 1,000 miles per hour and closer to the poles, the speed would be 800 miles per hour. Enormous tidal waves would occur once the earth stopped rotating. The power of momentum would make the water in the seas and oceans move to form extremely powerful tsunamis. They would move east and clean the coastal cities from the face of the earth.
