Scientists baffled as Earth tipped on its side and back again in bizarre ‘cosmic yo-yo’

  • October 27, 2021

Individual parts of the crust, like tectonic plates, are continuously sliding around and moving on top or under one another.

During the TPW, however, all of these layers moved together in unison, giving the Earth a distinct, tilted look.

Because the laters all moved at the same time, scientists would not expect to see any major seismic activity during this period.

The planet’s magnetic field would have also been static during the TPW because it is generated by the inner core, which stayed in its place.
