Asgardian Calendar Updated

The updated version of the 13-month calendar introduced by the Head of the Nation Dr. Igor Ashurbeyli on January 1, 2017, was published on the official website of Asgardia. The clarifications touched upon the issue of the frequency of introducing an additional day in leap years. The Calendar design was also updated

Now the calendar is broken down into six functional parts: a general view; Gregorian calendar date converter into Asgardian dates; calendar cycle table; a table of all calendar months of a year; overall annual calendar table, and a unified format calendar guide-mark table.

The Asgardia calendar, as presented on the Asgardia website, is a fixed calendar based on three principles: calendar equivalence, calendar synchronization of the real and ideal year, and the Morozov calendar constant [31/128 days].

It stipulates for the fixed beginning of each New Year on the same date and the same day of the week in the universal matrix, and also fixed numerical rows by means of introducing of a moving days of the week grid in the Gregorian calendar matrix.

Today, the grid of the days of the week [Sunday through Saturday] is rigidly fixed in almost all known calendars of the world. Whereby the rows of digits specifying calendar days from 1 to 365 (and 366 days in a leap year) are movable. They are shifted annually by one position in a conventional year, and by two positions in each year following a leap year.

In the Asgardian calendar, the “reverse order” is applied: the grid of the days of the week of the Gregorian calendar is made movable, while and the rows of numbers in both the Gregorian and universal matrices are fixed relative to each other.

The grid of the days of the week in the Gregorian matrix is annually shifted by one position in a conventional year, and by two positions in each year following a leap year.

The new standard of the time guide-mark format allows, for the first time in history ever, to introduce an absolute end-to-end archiving of any documents, facts and events with millisecond accuracy.

The “reverse” calendar fixing order is also applied for the first time in history. In relative astronomical parameters, both traditional and Asgardian calendars are absolutely equivalent. But the economic consequences of their use are not symmetrical.

Specifying a fixed date and day of the week for the start of each New Year will make it possible to avoid annual mass reprinting of paper calendars we are forced to do currently.
