|My birthday breakfast :D|
nor the fact that I got a call from my beloved 4-year-old nephew before I had even imagined a steaming hot cup of coffee in my hand, but the fact that if I was on one of the many other worlds out there right now it would not even be my birthday today.
So I thought I would find out how old I would be today on some of the other fantastic planets out there.
Mercury: 100 years and 248 days
Venus: 39 years old almost to the earth day
Earth: 24 years old (party in St Andrews tonight for all those at NAM 2013)
Mars: 12 and ¾ :D I think I will start using my Martian age to describe my mental age from now on.
Jupiter: 2 years and one week
Saturn: 297 days
Uranus: 103 days, this is getting a little silly now.
Neptune: 53 days
Pluto (hey! It was a planet when I was little.): 36 days
Hmmm. What about in another solar system?
Alpha Centauri Bb (the closest exoplanet to our solar system): 2,707 years
51 Pegasi b (the first exoplanet discovered to orbit a sun-like star): 2071 years
Kepler-16b (or Tatooine like Luke Skywalker): 38 years old; that is not too bad.
or I know,
55 Cancri e (the diamond planet, they are a girls best friend after all): 12,000 years old, well I think we will give that one a miss.
How about this,
HD 2952b: 21 years old. That is more like it. Now I just need to find a way of getting 115 light years away. Hmm maybe I will stick it out on Earth this year.
