I was watching the new Australian movie 'The Dish', and noted that the 
moon landing was recorded as occurring on July20th, even though it was 
July 21st in Australia, and the Parkes, Australia station was the one 
recording the information. It started me thinking what time zone was used 
in space. One friend thought it would be the one of the country who was 
funding the trip, but with the new international space station this surely 
breaks down! Which leaves the question, what time zone is the new space 
station in?
