Breaking the record for the shortest day, Earth on July 29 completed a full spin in 1.59 milliseconds less than its standard 24 hours, a report said.

The planet has recently been increasing its rotational speed,

As in 2020 the Earth witnessed its shortest month since the 1960s,from when it has been recorded, Independent reported.

Before this, the Earth had recorded its shortest day on July 19, 2020.

When it completed a full spin in less than 1.47 milliseconds than the standard 24-hour duration.

The Earth, in 2021 continued to spin at an increased rate, however, it did not break any record.

A 50-year phase of shorter days might be starting right now, a report by Interesting Engineering (IE) said.

The increased speed of the Earth's rotation was quite an unusual discovery for researchers.
