Just 24 hours in a day
June 12, 2007
Mars has a rotation around it’s own axle of about 37 minutes longer than earth. In the Mars-trilogy Kim Stanley Robinson describe how the immigrants to Mars solved this by making there watches stop at 00:00 for 37 minutes. Some of them experienced that this greatly increased what they could achieve in a day. Well, I’m gonna be needing that 37minutes per day for the next 6 days. The unfortunate reality is that everything is happening at the same time. I’m writing exam on Friday, handing in a project on Monday, preaching on Sunday, marking papers from Thursday, marks have to be in on Tuesday, and them their is one or two other small things happening. So I won’t be blogging for the next 6 days.
