Hello everyone, According to NASA, The North Magnetic pole shifts at least 10kms a year, which has speed up to 40kms a year now...
According to this site, the earth's diameter is 12,756 Kms along the equator.
If the north poles move 10kms a year, technically it would take 1275.6 years for the pole to do a whole rotation around the earth.
Now I'm wondering does this mean the polar ice cap would move too? and if it does, does this mean that the path that the pole moves along, would
freeze over time?
This planet has been around for millions,billions of years, that means the north pole must have circulated the earth at LEAST once.
Do anyone think this is a possibility?
