39 Minutes and 35 Seconds

According to various expert estimates, the day will come when humans will be required to find alternative habitable planets. Thanks to current available technologies, we know today that the planet most accessible for research is the one nearest to us, Mars. Due to a number of factors that influenced the length of a day, the day on Mars is 39 minutes and 35 seconds longer than that on Earth. With every day that goes by, the gap between the current time on both planets increases. When the timing on the two planets is synchronized, it then takes 37 days for their time to become synchronized once again. Thinking of the day when people will be living on both Earth and Mars, the project offers a glimpse of the future, a clock that displays the time on both planets at the same time, allowing the viewer to be in both places at the same time.
