What is the age difference of Earth's pole vs equator (theory of relativity)?


They are actually the same age, for not-obvious reasons. Basically, the difference in the passage of time due to the relative motion from the rotation is perfectly offset by the difference in the gravitational field due to Earth's shape. An explanation can be found here or here.

However, if you were to compare the age of the surface and the center, the core is over two years younger.
