From past so many years Astrologers have and are still saying that the position of planets affects the personalities and feelings of a person. Even though this fact lacked scientific proof, but now it turns out that the alignment of planets does influence a few things on earth. As George Dvorsky reports for Gizmodo, another investigation gives a physical verification which expresses that Venus and Jupiter’s gravity can cause a move in earth’s orbit; and swings in its climate every 405,000 years. Astronomers who have given long hypothesis regarding other planets effect of earth’s orbit lacked scientific and physical evidence.
Astronomers who have given long hypothesis regarding other planets effect of earth’s orbit lacked scientific and physical evidence. A new study which was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, demonstrates the impact of our planetary neighbor’s drag using a 1.500 foot rock core which was gathered in 2013 from a butte in Arizona’s Petrified Forest National Park and cores from the site of old lake beds in New York and New Jersey.
The samples taken from these sites were around 6 centimeters in breadth across and around 500 meters long. The more profound the analysts went, the deeper they went, and the more they went back in time where they finally entered the Triassic Period, the age of dinosaurs. By analyzing the samples, the team recorded long-term information on inversion of the magnetic poles of the Earth. These periodic however unusual inversions can be found in residue containing zircon minerals with uranium, which can be used for radiocarbon dating, empowering the example to fill in as a clock.
These periodic however unpredictable inversions can be seen in sediments containing zircon minerals with uranium, which can be utilized for radiocarbon dating, enabling the sample to serve as a clock. Climate changes have been observed in sediments in the form of alternating periods of dry and wet weather. As noted in the study, these samples were correlated with a remarkably continuous cycle going back nearly 215 million years to the Triassic time frame.
“Climatic cycles are directly identified with how the Earth rotates around the Sun, and slight variation in sunlight reaching earth which leads to climate and ecological changes,” the scientist said in an announcement, taking note of in passing that Earth’s orbit is growing by around 5% at regular intervals.
As noted in the investigation, Venus, the planet nearest to Earth, and Jupiter, the largest planet in the nearby planetary group, appear to influence our orbital direction because of their combined severity and this happens every 405,000 years. Therefore, the scientist recommends that occasional changes on Earth could then be more pronounced; creating hotter summers, colder winters, wetter stormy seasons and more parched dry seasons. Right now, our planet is amidst the cycle, with the last major orbital impact happening around 200,000 years ago.
