What would happen if the Earth stopped rotating on its axis?

Wind destructive force, literally blowing everything in its path, freezing cold on the shady side of the planet and the constant heat on the side, forever facing the Sun…. In this place there is no place for man, because every day in a place like this could turn him into a kind of survival game. What else would be waiting for us in a world where somehow, would be disrupted the natural process of the planet’s rotation around its axis and could it happen once to our Land?

Why do the planets move?

Did you know that in the Universe the process of rotation prone to almost all the universe? Rotate planets, stars, nebulae, galaxies and even entire clusters of galaxies! Obrazovalas in the protoplanetary cloud, the future of the planet get the chance axial rotation due to the motion of vortices inside their enveloping fog. In addition, axial rotation of the planets have a strong influence of their collision with each other and other celestial bodies.

There is an opinion: maybe people in the space too much?

If a barely formed planet turns out to be near its star, then with high probability, such a world at risk of gravitational capture. Blocked by the gravity of its star the planet is losing the ability to carry out a rotation around its axis. Nothing good for the younger the world is, as this planet is not capable of day and night, and its atmosphere, if it somehow managed to form, catastrophic losses.

The world in which we once

Let’s imagine an incredible scenario that could happen with the Earth at its early stage of formation, but, fortunately for us, never happened. For example, the result of early planetary bowling, our planet close to the Sun so that due to the gravitational influence of the stars, our world would be in a tidal capture. For Earth, it would mean a slow and certain death, as in such circumstances, the whole earth’s surface would have been of itself one big lava lake. Agree, not the most pleasant place for a possible development of humanity!

But what if the Earth would have lost the possibility of rotation around its axis is not the result of ancient collisions with other planets, but due to certain cataclysm, which hypothetically could happen in our time? Well, in this scenario, we could make only one thing: we could be witnessing the event that would be really awesome on a planetary scale!

In the planet’s atmosphere would go up by giant tornadoes and hurricanes sweeping away all life in its path. If you have survived as a result of their devastating effects, it would probably have unpleasant surprised, that one of the hemispheres of the planet is gradually set to a suffocating heat, while on the opposite side of the Earth would come the Kingdom of eternal cold and darkness, where never the Sun was rising.

In addition, the oxygen on the planet would become less and less. Its content in the atmosphere would decrease in proportion to the winterkill of the shadow side of the Earth. Gradually the atmosphere of the planet would finally condense on the surface, turning our world into a scorched solar radiation stone.

The only place where humanity could find shelter at least for a while, would be the boundary between the hemispheres. In this twilight zone would be to try to survive, but, given the fact that this strip of life on the planet would not be too big, and we are already 7 billion people, then perhaps it would be worthwhile to stay away from this place. But this is a completely different story…
