What if Earth was Flat? | #aumsum


It’s AumSum Time. What if Earth was Flat? I don’t like flats I like bungalows. Oh AumSum. Earth would not remain flat for a long time. As gravity will make sure it again pops up
into a sphere. Remember, gravity pulls equally from all sides,
hence planets are spherical. Now, if earth was flat and not a sphere, then
it would obviously stop rotating. This will lead to the following problems. Firstly, only revolution around the Sun but
no rotation around its axis. Would mean that Earth will experience a 6-month
long day. Followed by a 6-month long night. Secondly, it is believed that rotation of
Earth generates its magnetic field. Without rotation, there would be no magnetic
field to protect us. From the harmful solar winds. Also, it would mean an end to the world-famous
lights called Auroras. As they are formed due to the interaction
between. Earth’s magnetic field and particles of solar wind.
