***Picture of the Day*** 1/05/2007 Edition

35 replies 3 views Edited Jan 5, 2007
 
Explanation: "One hop bridges east and west at Greenwich, England, where a brass strip marks zero longitude. First used by sailors to fix their position, Greenwich mean time was adopted by railroads and, after 1884, worldwide as the standard for time of day. Time is now set not by earth's rotation, but by satellite and atomic clock."
 
**  i know this is a long shot but, did anyone ever visited Greenwich, England, and saw the brass strip?

I would have thrown a rock at the kid for ruining my clear shot of the brass strip.
