Earthquake moved the Earth

The Earthquake in Chile at the end of February was strong enough to move the axis of the Earth, scientists at NASA say.

The day has been slightly shortened by the 8 centimetre move.

The quake, which measured 8.8 on the richter scale, killed at least 795 Chileans. It is the 7th strongest earthquake of all time.
