World Jump Day
World Jump Day is observed on July 20 of every year. World Jump Day is exactly celebrated at 11:39.13 GMT, during which millions of people from Western Hemisphere jump simultaneously. It is believed that by doing the coordinating jump, the earth would be moved from its orbit into a new one, and would stop the global warming. Technically many scientists do agree with the concept, that particular activity can be done for fun and may affect the rotation of the earth to some extent. Scientists from the Department of Gravitation says that if 600 million people jump at the same moment, the earth will move a bit from its orbit, which will cause earth distant from the sun, resulting in reduced global warming. It is based on the theory that changes in earth mass will make a difference in earth’s orbit. But many people consider this day as a fun prank as earth mass includes plants and animals and until the whole mass is thrown off, its difficult to change the earth from its orbit. Working or not working, jump up to observe this day.
“Jump, and you will find out how to unfold your wings as you fall.” – Ray Bradbury
History of World Jump Day
World Jump Day was created by Torsten Lauschmann, a German artist from the United Kingdom. He created a website to promote the concept widely. World Jump Day was first observed on July 20, 2006; the site unbelievably had almost 600,256,820 registered jumpers. He considered the act as an art installation and reminded people about the global warming. But many people consider this day as the hoax, as the seriousness of the people intention is questionable and people weight on earth is so minimal that it is hard to cause any effect. The day is considered to be unscientific and was widely discredited. Whatever the reason is, jump to try your luck in moving the earth.
