Arrow Sol-way

The term sol is used by planetary astronomers to refer to the duration of a solar day on Mars..A Mean Martian solar day, or "sol", is 24 hours, 39 minutes, and 35.244 seconds..Mars has an axial tilt and a rotation period similar to those of Earth. Thus it experiences seasons of spring, summer, autumn and winter much like Earth, and its day is about the same length.. Its year, however, is almost twice as long as Earth's, and its orbital eccentricity is considerably larger, which means among other things that the lengths of various Martian seasons differ considerably, and sundial time can diverge from clock time much more than on Earth..The average length of a Martian sidereal day is 24h 37m 22.663s (based on SI units), and the length of its solar day (often called a sol) is 88,775.24409 seconds or 24h 39m 35.24409s. The corresponding values for Earth are 23h 56m 4.0916s and 24h 00m 00.002s, respectively. This yields a conversion factor of 1.0274912510 days/sol.. Thus Mars's solar day is only about 2.7% longer than Earth's...

Quote: sleep science (SOL) is the length of time that it takes to accomplish the transition from full wakefulness to sleep, normally to the lightest of the non-REM sleep stages..The village was first mentioned in 1252. It's name, Sol', which is Slovak for salt, comes from the 3 salt water springs which are in the vicinity of the village. The salt from the springs was used to salt foods until the beginning of World War I..The village a had a sizable Jewish community in the 1800s. The Jewish community had its own synagogue and may have had a religious school..The municipality lies at an altitude of 140 metres and covers an area of 10.286 kmĀ².. It has a population of about 2,293 people..Space-Occupying Lesion Satellite of Love isis the setting of the Mystery Science Theater 3000.. It is a giant bone-shaped spacecraft Vessel is in orbit above Earth during much of the time, except for a journey to the end of the universe and its flight throughout the space-time continuum of our universe is usually interpreted from a Euclidean space perspective, which regards space as consisting of 3 dimensions, and time as consisting of 1 dimension, the '4 dimension'..Sol was the currency of Peru between 1863 and 1985.. It had the ISO 4217 currency code PEN.. It was subdivided into 10 dineros or 100 centavos...'m the kinda G the little homies wanna be like..P and the Mooney..Minute after Minute, hour after hour Of course I have to humour Herbal Henry..
