NASA wants to come up with a new clock for the Moon, where seconds pass faster

Washington— The POT want to find a way Measure time out of this world and set a specific clock for the Moon.

It is not a time zone (division of the Earth's surface into 24 strips so that each of them corresponds to a time of day) like those on Earth, but of an entire new time frame of reference for the Moon.

With less gravity, time passes a little faster — 58.7 microseconds per day — compared to our planet. So the White House directed Tuesday that NASA and other federal agencies collaborate with international agencies to devise a new time reference system for the Moon.
