John Hopkins University astronomer and former NASA astrophysicist, Richard Conn Henry created the Hanke-Henry Permanent Calendar. A calendar that transforms dates, making eight months have 30 days, and every third month to have 31 days, with an extra week added every so often. Each day would fall under the same day of the week as the previous year.
If adopted in the upcoming year, Christmas and New Years would end up on a Sunday each and every year.
“Every institution in the world has to change their calendar. Sports schedules. Every company. The dates of holidays have to be reset. And it’s totally unnecessary,” he said.
Hanke-Henry calendar tackles timekeeping next. He suggests using Universal Time, also known as Greenwich Mean Time. There would be no time zones or daylight savings time, something Henry is not fond of.
Using this new calendar would not rule out the Gregorian calendar though. The Gregorian calendar is necessary for agriculture.
