Just since 1997 the structure of the Earth has shifted from being slightly more egg-shaped, or elongated at the poles, to more pumpkin-shaped, or flattened at the poles. No one at NASA has even bothered to try to explain this yet. Link to full article at NASA.
This is some real stuff ya'll, I can't believe this is not in the mainstream news, and a hot topic at that! I know something is gonna kill us one way or another, but jeez, looks like the whole universe is falling apart!

Wow, all of that is incredibly interesting, but...
I'm confused, the NASA article was originally published almost 6 years ago, why has this site only picked up on it now?
The explanation in the original NASA article seems to point that it might be water melting from the poles, but also mentions something about our magnetic field.
It'd be good to find a secondary source. From the link:
"PLUTO: As of September 2002, Pluto has experienced a 300-percent increase in its atmospheric pressure in the last 14 years, while also becoming noticeably darker in color."
Where did they get that from? I mean, it's incredibly interesting if it's true, but I don't think we have a barometer on Pluto.
