The old Doomsday Clock created in 1947 for the cover of the journal Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists makes an effort to predict the risks of a Doomsday by showing a clock with the hands approaching midnight. There is another and rather obvious way in which similar information about Doomsday could be presented. Have a clock presenting how many days it has been since Doomsday began, and that beginning point could be labeled the detonation of the first atom bomb at Alamogordo, New Mexico on July 16th 1945 at 8 AM. This clock could be put into universal time or better yet into astronomical time—the decimal days calendar called Julian Date. For example the Trinity A-bomb at Alamogordo exploded at:
1945-07-16=12\29\45t which converts to JD decimal days 2431653.02066
Or using the new JulianA indexing system which indexes the time and location it would be presented as:
JulianA~event,first atomic bomb explosion, 2431653.02066, +33.6773, -106.4754, +1499,~
2454764.03109 -2431653.02066 = 23111.0104
So, the moment of this post is 23111.0104 AAT
It needs a nice presentation such as:
My current time is 23,111.01040 days past The Doomsday Clock’s midnight.
