This region calls for 26-hour days

If days always last 24 hours, there is often no time. This is why this region asked for assistance. &agrav; the European Commission to gain two additional hours.

24-hour days are sometimes too short to have time to do all your planning. Some would dream of having longer days to increase the number of activities. This is the wish that one of the regions of a European country has just made. She made a request à the European Commission to establish a new time zone with days of two additional hours, or 26 hours.

The goal is simple: to give residents more time. This extension would be justified by a particular feeling of peace and tranquility. which allows a different conception of time. This would allow locals to enjoy “activities such as fishing, hunting, learning new languages ​​or simply being with loved ones.” , underlinedé Wenche Pedersen, mayor of the town of Vadso, Norway, who formulated the this funny request, according Politico.

This region calls for 26-hour days

She would like to share the way of life in her region: “We don't run after buses or trains and we don't have to take up a lot of time to get to work. We are very happy to live in a part of Norway where most people live. “We have more time to be with our friends, with our family and together,” she explained. She thus wishes to attract new arrivals because the city is quite isolated and is located near the Russian border. But is this possible in practice ? The implementation of the project is currently not very successful. “The clock will go from 12 ' 13… and we have to see how it will happen,” he simply explained. I don't think they'll say yes, so we haven't thought about it. &agrav; “all the details,” admitted the mayor. 

Norway is not a member country of the EU but is part of the European Economic Area ;eacute;en (EEA). Politico reports that, according to a European Commission official, time zones actually fall under the same umbrella. oacute; of the countries themselves. There is therefore little chance that the EU will be able to access this measure. such a request.

However, it might happen one day. According to scientists from the University & #39; Munich technique, the rotation of the Earth is experiencing changes which could lead to longer days on our planet. The length of days on Earth has already increased. considerably varied; over the millennia. In the age of dinosaurs, it lasted 23 hours and research suggests it could be longer.' the future extends until 'à 25 then probably 26 hours.

The progressive decrease in the speed of rotation of the earth, which is estimated at approximately 1.7 milliseconds per century, is notably linked to the gravitational interaction between the Earth and the Moon but also & the activity seismic or even atmospheric circulation.
