    It was all very fascinating up to the conclusion, which I'd have the audacity to challenge. Couldn't it be that the Earth is flipping and has flipped many times according with The Effect on the course of its history, but since we're always looking at Earth from the perspective of its maximum moment of inertia, we have a hard time seeing the flips across the space-time? I mean, our basic orientation centered on the Equator is merely a convenient one, and not based on a "fixed" point on the nearby universe. And the supposed "pause" in movement and redirection of the Earth's rotation on the apex of the flip could be explained by our perception of time through Quantum Physics. I know, our planet turns from the left to the right and there's no sign it ever went the other way, but that too could be something explained solely from our perspective on the surface of the lithosphere. Actual signs of flipping are only detectable for us today through our measurements of the Earth's magnetic field and/or gravitational anomalies, not on a conventional spatial way. I don't know, I'm obviously not a theoretical physicist. But I suppose there could be something there along these lines. We're just not looking at the big picture yet, or we're not looking hard enough, or thinking outside of the globe-shaped box. It might be just a question of perception, but we're flipping alright. Anyone has thoughts on my postulation?

    I have so many questions!! Is it possible that something external or internal like a big earthquake could change significantly the distribution of the earth mass causing the earth to readjust it’s axis? I heard that the 9.5 degrees earthquake in Valdivia, Chile in 1960, was great enough to change the axis of rotation, although I don’t know if it is true. But if it was, was it because of this phenomenon?? And was it like this in the beginning of the earth?? How would this phenomenon affect life? Aaah this is sooo cool!!

    I hate that I have to correct so many people about this. We can go faster than the speed of light! It has only been obtained once before back in 1985, I do believe the exact day was November 5th. A Doctor by the name of Emmett Brown slipped and bumped his head on the edge of his bathroom sink back in 1955. He had a vision of a device he called the flux capacitor which is what makes going faster than the speed of light possible. It has the ability to form in an instant a warp bubble around an object and speed it up to well over light speed. The object can move so much faster than light speed it hits what's called the McFly boundary at which you can then travel through time itself. For 30 years dr. Brown struggled to develop his flux capacitor but failed due to it's requirement of 1.21 gigawatts of power. In 1985 he was able to mount a small plutonium reactor they gave him the power he required. He also found the warp bubble will not form around the object unless that object is already traveling at 88 miles per hour. Dr. Brown did manage to make a working model of this machine out of a DeLorean that was destroyed after only a few time shifts. All attempts to recreate this technology have failed.

    I find their conclusion to be inaccurate. Why? Because the Wing Nut in space is already spinning around its greatest axes of inertia, yet it flips at regular rates, always returning to the axes of greatest inertia. So I disagree with their conclusion that the Earth won't flip.

    What if a geological event causes the moment of inertia to relocate somewhere else? The Pangea broke apart and following the explanations shown here, may have cause a “flipping” of some sort to occur. If a rift along the continental plates causes some part of the earth to go heavy, won’t it cause the planet to shift its rotational axis? Not a scientist, but it seems plausible.

    This is why it's impossible to predict motion of 3 or more massive bodies, rotating in all possible axes. It's not all just relativity, we should treat gravity as special freedom of movement or figure out how space time twisting affect all 3 dimensions. Even better, forget about dimensionallity as we know it, up down left right forward and back does not describe volume of space in reality.

Just one roll of film from space why is impossible. Only computer photoshopped pictures hmm. Do a video on why Elon 's car , an why the tires didn't explode an catch fire ,an the seats didn't catch fire are the dashboard,are the paint job why didn't it catch fire 🔥. Another good video idea would be if all electric was cut off too Huston swimming pool an that local would we be able to see astronauts at the space station.52 million a day an not one photograph.

    i think this proves how the earth could flip if adding enough ice mass to Greenland would this not pull Greenland to the equator until the ice melts and mass is reduced then pull it back again? I believe this is the theory of the DieHold foundation guy i dont remember for sure. When things cool and ice builds up at the poles wouldn't this change the mass dynamics of the planet? if im wrong cool just explain to me why relocating large amount of mass in the form of ice wouldn't change the rotation characteristics of our rotating body?

  • Joe Carr

    I think if you used a mechanical device to flip the racket rather than your hand it may flip and land on same side. For Eg. if a left handed person flips the racket, does it spin to the left or does it spin the same way as someone that's right handed? i think it's because we don't release the racket straight as a machine could.

  • Dom Ex

    when i first saw this behaviour my first thought was incremental inconsistencies in the axis causing moments of inertia to balance and then counter balance, to me this is a simple explanation very simple u can see it to start with a coin when you spin it poorly the only difference there is that the motion stabilises and stay stable till friction slows it but for the first second or more the axis of momentum are out of balance , putting this to the wing nut without friction the stabilising effect continues till the motion cannot and forced a reversal oddly this sounded simpler in my head than it was to put in to words

  • SysPowerTools
    SysPowerTools 5 hours ago

    You can't just look at it and see the cause? In the slow mo it's obviously not spinning perfectly there is a little wobble. As the spinning continues the minimum moment of inertia drifts and the centrifugal force yanks it violently all the way to the center, then beyond to the other side. Like a pendulum but the centrifugal force is whats affecting it instead of gravity. Thats why the process repeats. A perfectly balanced object wouldn't do this if spinning perfectly on any axis through it's center of mass in a vacuum. ... That said, I'm still gonna finish the video. I'd like to see the math behind it. I bet it's pretty clever.
