Heads up! It’s Daylight Savings Time.

Sunday, March 11, 2018, at 2:00:00 am don’t forget to turn your clocks forward 1 hour. Time travel to Sunday, March 11, 2018, 3:00:00 am!

With the simple turn of a clock, you will cause the sun to rise and set an hour later than the day before! You will cause there to be more light in the evening. What awesome POWER!

This amazing feat is also called Spring Forward, Summer Time, and Daylight Savings Time.

Speaking of which…

xkcd issued a humorous comic about Hollywood making a movie about people reviving a dying sun.  The strip was called, “The Sun”.

The tagline:  “Daylight savings time!  Never fall back” (until Nov. 4, apparently, when Daylight Savings time ends). 

In 2007 Hollywood actually made the movie (”Sunshine”), starring Rose Byrne and Chris Evans in which “A team of astronauts are sent to re-ignite the dying sun 50 years into the future.” Here’s the trailer:

I am a big fan of “Sunshine” but I will acknowledge that some of the scientific premises of the film are a bit farfetched.
Popular Mechanics published 10 Questions for Sunshine’s movie Scientific Advisor to answer (and received answers to all ten).
