Seeking a Martian Time Synchronization

- In the 1960's the first few Mars mission designs were proposed, and, at first, some of the less complicated robotics-based projects were put into action. It was around this time of early Mars exploration and mission planning that project designers realized that we, as humans, would have to adapt to the Martian clock and calendar during these missions; we would not be able to force Mars to work within Earth time periods.

Compare and contrast the music of the Medieval, Rennaissance, and Baroque periods

- Music throughout the ages has changed dramatically. Starting in the Medieval period, from 400-1475, music was in the form of what is called the Gregorian chant.
