LunarClock.org Gives The Time And Date On The Moon

moonclock-s

LunarClock.org have devised a clock and calendar for the moon. Apparently, this was necessary because of the moon’s rotation and length of day is different than the Earth’s (or something like that). Anyway, the site’s FAQ gives some explanation.

You can read the details on how this calendar works.

Visit LunarClock.org and check current lunar time.

The researchers have now completed their first 3D models showing this section of the city as it stands today.

It is actually a narrow alley, called Spreuerhofstraße, between two closely built houses. The “street” is only 31 centimeters wide at its narrowest point and 40 centimeters wide on the average. The street isn’t particularly long either — just 3.8 meters. But since it is located on municipal land, the folks of Reutlingen insist it’s a public street.

Rejoice, brothers! File sharing is now an official religion in Sweden. For real. It took two years, but it’s done: it’s called the Missionary Church of Kopimism and has Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V as its sacred symbols. Founded in 2010 by philosophy student Isak Gerson, the 3,000-member Missionary Church of Kopimism was created to avoid legal persecution.
