Re: Martian Calender - I have created a martian calender...

Special note to SpaceNut ...

In the past day or so the daily Mars calendar post contains an acknowledgement of the financial contributions of Mars Society members, which supports the server infrastructure upon which the NewMars forum database resides.

This may be a long shot, but conceivably it might be possible to adapt the daily Mars Calendar posting for a short syndicated item that could be distributed to newspapers around the US and perhaps elsewhere.  While the income generated would (no doubt) be small, it might help the Mars Society to pay the bills.

As part of the daily syndicated item, a short summary of discussions on the NewMars forum might be of interest to readers.

Where a paper would put such an items is a question.  Some papers have science sections, and for those that do this might be a good fit, along with the astronomical predictions for the day.  Otherwise, it might fit into one of the miscellaneous short item collections that often appear.

I am in the process of converting from all hardcopy printed paper for my local paper, which has become unaffordable, to the all-digital pdf edition, which is eminently affordable AND which shows up on a new monitor very nicely indeed.

Would you have any idea about how to proceed with the idea of a syndicated daily news item like this?

Appendix 1: (Note to SpaceNut) Thank you for the list of syndication pathways in #413

I confess to finding some of the names on the list to be intimidating.  It is ONE thing to offer a daily post in a "safe" environment such as the NewMars forum, and quite another to make a commitment to production of a daily update for distribution to larger numbers of people.

An issue that should be of concern as well, is how to insure continuity of the updates if a contract ** is ** signed.  That's a hurdle for a future (hypothetical) time, but one that cannot be avoided if the venture is to proceed.

Appendix 2: The post above was added to the Blog at Luf.Org.

Re: Martian Calender - I have created a martian calender...

Today on Mars: 

Per http://www-mars.lmd.jussieu.fr/mars/tim … _time.html

Martian Year: 35        Martian Month in 12 month format: 4
Solar Longitude: 118.8        Sol Number: 256

Previous SL: 118.3        Previous Sol: 255

Note that Solar Longitude measurement varies as a function of location in orbit.

Sol 256 is in Month 10 of a Proposed 24 month calendar. See Post 19 of Holidays topic for a summary.
Month 10 extends from Sol 252 through 279. See post 82 of Holidays topic for current details. <<== There are 28 days in Month 10

Sol 256 is Thursday in the Proposed calendar for Mars. 

The Next New Year on Mars will occur when Solar Longitude reaches 360 degrees.
The next Skip Day will occur near December 22nd.  At that time the days of the week will be back in alignment.

Events of interest will be ON Mars, or relate to Mars. Examples are launches, landings, discoveries

The topic My Hacienda is set up to encourage up to 2750 forum members to build a virtual community.
Each participant "claims" a square kilometer of surface, and shares below surface with the community.
Each Hacienda is a participant in the economy of a thriving interdependent free market.
