Calendars developed over thousands of years on Earth. The Sumerian and Mayan calendars almost look like they are for different planets. The Māori Maramataka is a lunar calendar. How have Earth calendars changed over the millennia? As we travel to other planets, other solar systems, how can we develop calendars and other time-keeping devices to know when "now" is?
