Looks like Mars doesn’t spin perfectly on its axis. In fact, it wobbles.
And no one knows why.
This makes Mars only the second planet in our solar system to exhibit what’s called the “Chandler wobble.”
The other planet?
Why, Earth, of course.
(And, no, nobody knows why. Hmm. Chandler?)

Well that was interesting for sure. I like space, but know next to nothing about it, so I’m glad I stumbled on this site!

Thanks! I try to post regularly about space related science as well as my own stories.
