Time Dilation to Mars

But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

(2 Peter 3:8) KJV

If we’re correct and gravity is a field emitted from the center of the Earth which causes gravitational time dilation (GTD), then we should have an accurate data point with the time dilation between the Earth and Mars.

Gravity (A) is a field emitted from a created instance (a singularity) which causes a body to have attractive force (p) proportional to its mass and inversely proportional to the square of its distance from the source (pG).

G is the gravitational constant. This is a general physical law derived from empirical observations by using deduction.

– Matty’s Law of Biblical Gravitation

The funny thing is, this is both an incredibly simple issue and a remarkably complex one at the same time. If you search for “Mars time dilation” you’ll quickly see what a complex issue timekeeping on Mars can be. It becomes an example of scientific sleight-of-hand.

It’s normally framed in terms of the time dilation experienced by probes and landers which are on Mars because Martian gravity is less than Earth’s and so time will pass slightly faster. From that point it only gets more complicated because what’s a day on Mars anyway? Do we use an Earth day, or a rotation of Mars? They’re not the same.

Conventions have been held in order to come to an agreement on some kind of standardized way to talk about the passage of time anywhere in the solar system other than the Earth. It can take a while to dig through the science lingo and physics to find the nugget of truth at the bottom of it all.

For the Mars Pathfinder, Mars Exploration Rover (MER), Phoenix, and Mars Science Laboratory missions, the operations teams have worked on “Mars time”, with a work schedule synchronized to the local time at the landing site on Mars, rather than the Earth day. This results in the crew’s schedule sliding approximately 40 minutes later in Earth time each day. Wristwatches calibrated in Martian time, rather than Earth time, were used by many of the MER team members.

That’s our data point. Time on Mars runs approximately 40 minutes faster every day compared to time on Earth. That’s exactly what we predicted we would find based on our premise. We can add it to our Gravitational Time Dilation Data Points.
