What is the Coriolis Effect?  The rotation of the Earth plays havoc with large, free moving objects. Objects in the Northern Hemisphere are deflected to the right, while objects in the Southern Hemisphere are deflected to the left. The effects can be seen in air currents, surface ocean currents, missile trajectories, and the flight path of planes. How does the Coriolis Effect impact you?
