Résumé de la production
The aim of the article is to study the angles that the clock hands form.
We will describe which angle the two clock hands form in a determined hour during the day and
then we will analyze some particular situation.
Then, starting from the clock problem, we will study the planetary motion, we will find out the
angular position and the time at which it would be more advantageous to launch a spaceship from
one planet to reach another one with the shortest possible distance.
Finally we will propose the results of two simulations concerning the Solar System using Unity.
