The thought that came to mind while reading the posts on the 15 billion plus years measured by background radiation was that these measurements are then applied to the current duration of our rotation around the sun = 1year throughout it.
How were the changes that went along with that great span of time factored in, such as the period before the the earth existed, and the difference between the speed of rotation of our galaxy, solar system and earth.
Does anyone know what our rotation time around the sun was 1 billion years ago in current time?
Or was the background radiation calculated as a measuring method by current time and then applied using decay rates or something like that does not need to consider those things? I did not know you had to login to this site to reply and lost it during the signup/login process, which post was it?
