What time is it on Mars?
So, you can be an uber geek and get this little Java app to run on your PDA or cool Java enabled phone. Because, everyone is going to call you and will need to know what time it is on the red planet.
Mars24 is a Java program and browser applet which displays a Mars “sunclock”, a graphical representation of the planet Mars showing its current sun- and nightsides, along with a numerical readout of the time in 24-hour format. Other displays include a plot showing the relative orbital positions of Mars and Earth and a diagram showing the solar angle for a given location on Mars.
Do other planets have different time zones if no one even lives there? If Mars has 24 time zones, too…isn’t it always the same time SOMEWHERE on Mars? And does it adjust for daylight savings?! How does that even work for another planet?
