TIL The Earth's rotation and speed changes with the weather and geological events. This means atomic time and solar time may not be identical. Sometimes leap seconds are needed for an adjustment. On 31 Dec 2016, a leap second was added, and the time 23:59:60 existed. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lea…
ELI5: We measure space objects speed in relation to earth. But since earth is also moving through space, how do we know the true speed of objects without a universal "non moving" point?
The speed of an object is measure relative to the observer. But since all objects are moving in relation to all objects, how can we know the true speeds of things? Wouldnt two observers on different planets measuring an object in space come up with different answers?

[OT] Thanks to r/WritingPrompts, I spent the past 6 years working on a trilogy about an Earth with forests instead of oceans. I write for a living now. This subreddit changed my life.
It’s been six years since u/thefragpotato posted a writing prompt about a world with deep, dark forests instead of oceans. I responded to that prompt. My response received some upvotes! A few people left nice comments! Two users, u/EasyxTiger and u/redwingpanda, even requested a continuation!
Well… I continued it, alright. That response grew into a novel, The Forest, which I published in 2015. You folks were nice to me when I posted about it here, so I kept going. I published a sequel, Pale Green Dot, in 2017. And you folks were nice to me again!
So I kept going. A few weeks ago I published the final book in the trilogy, Symbiosis. You can check it out on Amazon via the links below:
