Do you know ?

– The idea for the UTC was formulated in the 1960s
– The UTC was designed as a way to accommodate the difference between solar time and atomic time, and is kept within 0.9 seconds of solar time to follow Earth’s rotation variations and within an exact number of seconds of the International Atomic Time (TAI).
– Currently, moon missions follow the time of the country which operates the spacecraft, while the International Space station (ISS) runs on the UTC.
– However, a standardised time for space and the moon is not followed.
