  1. I'm not sure how that would effect either seems like a small difference! Might look into any studies done in the polar regions here on Earth. That and how that compares with that of the poles on Mars, you might find that the 24h 37m to be at Mars equator. (spacefriend)

      For one day or two maybe but if you are going to spend your life on mars same study must be done.I don't remember where i read something talking about the scientist that monitors the rovers on mars they were frustrated by the martian 24H.37M.look at this insted http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circadian_rhythm

  2. So how's that effect chickens, they have to have a good enviroment to lay eggs, but farmers keep the lights on 24-7 so they lay eggs around the clock. But they still lay eggs :).

  4. NASA and co where getting frustrated with the 24.37 rotation because they where constantly having to resynch it with Earths 24 hour, which is a lot harder than it sounds. Having the relative time on earth creep by half an hour a day in comparrison to Mars must be quite a logistical headache. However those actually going to Mar's don't have to pay any heed to Earths 24 hour rotation, they can slowly extend their day periods on the ship during the journey so by the time they get there it's as natural as the normal 12/12, live withit for as long as they're there, (an extra 16 mins of day and night isn't going to hurt anyone,) and then slowly synch back on the return journey. This is one of the benefits of going to Mar's first, it's rythems are as close to Earth as we're gonna get.

  5. This will not affect anyone or plants. Hours of daylight varies from the martian north pole, equator and south pole. Plus the planet wobbles so that would be some thing not mattering at all.

    If Mars is going to have it's 'own' 24 hours, then one hour would be 61 minutes and 45 seconds.

    I hope this answers your question.

  8. Soran University, from the beginning of its establishment till now, has always had great dreams and aspirations. It has tried to cross the borders and establish academic relations with other universities, and open a new door toward the world and knowledge.

    In the latest achievement, Soran University announces that in the near future with the help of the University of Central Florida, a Kurdish Studies department will be opened in this university.
