International Earth Rotation Services (IERS)

[ #11736 ]
The good news: we're so advanced now as a civilization that we have an international coalition just to keep the earth spinning.

The bad news: they're based in France.

  • I think you mean they are based in 'Freedom', no?
  • I think we can look forward to many petulant letters written by committees dismayed and disappointed at how the Earth's rotation is not meeting the standards of the international community.

      I would ignore all such letters. It's all just spin.

  • The service now accomplishes its missions through various components: a Central Bureau, Techniques Centers, Product Centers and Combination Research Centers.

    What a lame way to attempt this. Further proof that the only way to get things done is to cut bureaucracy and just do it. Way to go, earth!
