The day the world moved

OK, corny title, but entirely accurate. The North Pole is thought to have shifted about an inch, and 2.68 microseconds got shaved off a day. All the projected result of the Indian earthquake. Which made me wonder - all those atomic clocks people are building to be accurate within one second in however million years have to be adjusted slightly or something.

And remember, on Friday the Huygens probe makes its descent into Titan.
