Space Age

Given an age in seconds, calculate how old someone would be on:

  • Earth: orbital period 365.25 Earth days, or 31557600 seconds
  • Mercury: orbital period 0.2408467 Earth years
  • Venus: orbital period 0.61519726 Earth years
  • Mars: orbital period 1.8808158 Earth years
  • Jupiter: orbital period 11.862615 Earth years
  • Saturn: orbital period 29.447498 Earth years
  • Uranus: orbital period 84.016846 Earth years
  • Neptune: orbital period 164.79132 Earth years

So if you were told someone were 1,000,000,000 seconds old, you should be able to say that they’re 31.69 Earth-years old.

No Stub

This may be the first Go track exercise you encounter without a stub: a pre-existing space_age.go file for your solution. You may not see stubs in the future and should begin to get comfortable with creating your own Go files for your solutions.

One way to figure out what the function signature(s) you would need is to look at the corresponding *_test.go file. It will show you what the package level functions(s) should be that the test will use to verify the solution.

Running the tests

To run the tests run the command go test from within the exercise directory.

If the test suite contains benchmarks, you can run these with the --bench and --benchmem flags:

go test -v --bench . --benchmem

Keep in mind that each reviewer will run benchmarks on a different machine, with different specs, so the results from these benchmark tests may vary.
