If you venture much beyond the exosphere of planet earth, the concept of Thursdays begins to break down. Seeing as earth days are measured relative to earth’s position relative to earth’s star, you’re already in trouble before you get to the moon. That Thursdays specifically were named after the Norse deity Thor is an additional complication, what with vikings being somewhat thin on the ground in the outer reaches of the galaxy.
Honestly, “Thursday” is as good as meaningless before you ever reach the Kuiper Belt.
It doesn’t make earthbound Thursdays any less dreadful, but it’s nice to know that there’s hope that once humans venture Out There, they might never need endure another Thursday afternoon.
And if that’s not a reason to invest in the space program, I don’t know what is.
