    We did have some similar nonsense a few weeks ago.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    Four time zones (Pacific, Mountain, Central and Eastern) so 3 hours difference.

    Actually, you're forgetting about the time zones in the 49th and 50th states. We also have Alaska time (four hours difference from East Coast time) and Hawaiian Time (five hours difference from East Coast time).

    But this is nothing compared to Russia, which has eleven time zones and ten hours of difference from the eastern most to the western most.

    I always forget about those 2 time zones - apologies to any residents of Alaska or Hawaii for my forgetfulness

    Well, that means the current administration in the US can't get rid of it. If they even tried, there would like be two more years of investigation into this new form of "collusion".
