Time ZonesI have two timezone related pages I have been working on recently. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20060210 20:01:45
Re: Time ZonesIt's cool. I've just had a quick skim... on the Earth Orbit page am I meant to be able to move the big Earth? I can fully move it up and down on its axis, like behind the the text and everything. Just seemed a bit weird. #3 20060211 03:38:40
Re: Time ZonesSuperlative work as always. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #4 20060211 13:29:53
Re: Time Zonescool, just had a look Last edited by Tigeree (20060211 13:30:09) People don't notice whether it's winter or summer when they're happy. ~ Anton Chekhov Cheer up, emo kid. #5 20060221 13:52:44
Re: Time ZonesDaylight savings is in the summer, I agree I just heard that, and so in the winter the the sun probably is most direct at noon, while in the summer the noon time comes before the sun is overhead. I wonder if that statement is true. Also there are at least one place on Earth that has their time zone off by 1/2 an hour! Maybe NewFoundland? But that would be tough to show. igloo myrtilles fourmis #6 20060221 18:33:20
Re: Time ZonesThank you so much! That is pretty much why I make these things. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #7 20060222 02:53:44
Re: Time ZonesI can't think of a solution to the 365.25 turns and needing a lot of patience to watch it. igloo myrtilles fourmis #8 20060303 15:05:31
Re: Time ZonesI just discovered the slider control for the speed of orbit and # of rotations in Earth's orbit. igloo myrtilles fourmis #9 20060303 15:25:47
Re: Time ZonesAlso I did some counting at various speeds of orbit, and the number of rotations is too high by the √ 2 sorry to say. Last edited by John E. Franklin (20060303 15:31:58) igloo myrtilles fourmis #10 20060303 15:51:32
Re: Time ZonesA quarter of a year is about 80? That makes only 320 I shall look "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #11 20060304 03:07:49
Re: Time ZonesNo, the number wasn't eighty, that's where I got mixed up counting in French. The number was possibly over a hundred. igloo myrtilles fourmis
