Solid Earth Tides

Written by: Captain Skellett // April 18th, 2010 // How Things Work, The Realm of Bizzare

Oceans aren’t the only thing that respond to the moon. The land has tides as well.

My videos are all found on my YouTube Channel. If you love me or fear me, click through and RANK ME OR WALK THE PLANK!

It’s unbelievable that the ground beneath you actually moves up twice a day, just like the tides. Imagine what that must mean for the tectonic plates. Seismic activity is involved to make it happen. The vibrations are very slow, but Earth Sound have recordings of it sped up so we can hear it.

Mind is now blown.
