I am a mechanical engineer working on ground systems software in the European space industry.
Time is...complicated. It seems simple enough when you are close to the surface of the Earth and you have a device in your pocket that is constantly connected to atomic clocks. But go to outer space and things get uncomfortable pretty quickly. This talk explores how AstroTime.jl has evolved and how it can help you deal with the intricacies of time such as leap seconds and different time scales. Even if you are neither an astronomer nor an astronaut!
