Earth’s Rotation Day returns every year on January 8th for another orbit around the sun. The founders of this holiday wanted to honor and remember Léon Foucault, who was the first to demonstrate how the earth rotates on its axle. Before Foucault, humans had tried to figure out how the planet moved and functioned for thousands of years to no avail.

History’s scientists gradually made discoveries that proved that the earth was round and that it rotated on an axis and around the sun. However, it wasn’t until 1851 that Léon Foucault discovered how the earth rotated. Since his breakthrough, earth’s inhabitants have been able to make many more discoveries about our world, space, and the other planets that share it with us.
