Hi all, I am currently working on an International Space
Station project and I want a timer that shows how long the space
station has been in orbit, like the one located on the nasa
The only problem is Im not too sure how to go about it. I
know I can get the system date, but I dont know how to work out the
difference between a system date and a given date ie the launch
date of the iss.
The OP shouldn't have to deal with leap years with the script
you posted, Andrew... but I'm curious, what's the exact time of the
Zarya - the first module - reaching orbit (I couldn't find anything
more than the date)?... and to the OP, is your timer going to
include hours, minutes, seconds?
