Class subject: Time Zones.

Because Earth is spinning, the time is different in different countries, except some countries, like USA and Russia, where they have many time zones. There are also different methods to set ana measure time zones. Because Planeta 42 is based on Wikipedia, we also encourage the UTC time zone, which is very simple and least confusing. Except those UTC+13 and UTC+14, which for the game are merged with UTC+12. So here is how it works: UTC 0 is again the Greenwich and is the base(pivot) point. Everything to the right, including Africa, Europe, Asia and Australia is +1, +2 and so on. Then if it is 12:00 in UK, it is 13:00 in Germany, 14:00 in Moscow and so on. Everything to the left of Greenwich, including ocean islands, Greenland and America is -1, -2 and so on, which means they are early. This is because Earth is spinning to the left (accepting that north pole is at the top).

This fun learning game may answer some of the following questions:
  • Which are the world time zones?
  • What is the time ina USA if it is noon in Europe?
