Hour Edit

Is there really any reason to believe that this is any different from a regular hour than say, what the similarly trumped up sounding solar hour is? --Alan (talk) 21:39, December 20, 2018 (UTC)

They seemed to think enough of it to qualify it thusly. Maybe it uses a different definition, much like how they changed what a kilogram is recently from the weight of a specific piece of stuff to a measurement that could be verified anywhere. --LauraCC (talk) 18:40, December 21, 2018 (UTC)

Like I said, it sounds more to me like a trumped up version of hour. 'Let's add 'star' in front of it and make it sound more spacey!' Like star cruiser. Since Star and Solar are probably mostly synonymous, and solar hour and regular hour were used pretty interchangeably, this could be lumped into its own subsection of the hour page, like was done with solar hour. --Alan (talk) 20:03, December 21, 2018 (UTC)

The reference here is to experience, rather than a specific unit of time. The real-world comparator is "flight hours". That to me makes it a different concept from hour per se. -- Michael Warren | Talk 20:33, December 21, 2018 (UTC)
Ah, good point. "Hours spent among the stars" as opposed to a unit of time used in space. I'd forgotten that. --LauraCC (talk) 16:16, December 27, 2018 (UTC)
