Imagine a world in which every night is six months long? Can you imagine living in a world like that? That would be exactly the world we would have to live if the Earth stopped spinning. We all know from our high school days that the Earth spins around its own axle, and orbits around the sun. But have you ever asked yourself the question what would happen if the Earth stopped spinning?

It is a hypothetical situation, one which has probability of happening 0% in the next few billion years. This documentary takes a look at some of the conditions and situations happening if the earth stopped spinning.

One thing that would happen is rocks, trees, building, your clothes, your pets, everything you can imagine would be swept away into the atmosphere due to the fact that the atmosphere would still be in motion with the original rotation speed. This is a situation in which the Earth would stop spinning instantly.

If the process is gradually, the conditions would be different. Take a look at some of the hypothetical conditions that will become standard if the Earth stops spinning.
