Neue Kaiserära in Japan: Das Jahr-1-Problem - Golem.de

Wenn in Japan mit dem 1. Mai der Kaiser wechselt, ändert sich auch die Zeitrechnung: Die Kalender springen zurück auf das Jahr 1. Das beschäftigt nicht nur die Gesellschaft, sondern auch IT-Abteilungen. Es gibt Angst vor Bugs und Datenverlust.
Als ich davon das erste Mal gehört hatte, musst ich auch dran denken wie viel legacy software es wohl noch gibt, die de Äranamen fest im Code hat und x handgefrickelte Methoden zur Berechnung von Daten.

Reiwa: Japan prepares to enter new era of 'fortunate harmony' | World news | The Guardian

Japanese public bodies and companies now have a month to incorporate the new era’s name into their paperwork and computer systems before Naruhito ascends the Chrysanthemum throne, becoming the country’s 126th emperor. The new gengo will appear on everything from train tickets and software to official documents and calendars.
Poor software developers :(
I wonder how many bugs are there and how many times this era was hardcoded into the software...

Japan's Hayabusa2 spacecraft to attempt to do sample collection from Ryugu.
More than 4 years after launch and a half year surveying asteroid Ryugu in space, Japan's Hayabusa2 spacecraft is ready for its biggest moment yet: sample collection. The spacecraft is scheduled to touch down on Ryugu at 08:15 Japan time on 22 February (21 February 23:15 UTC, 18:15 EST). If all goes well, Hayabusa2 will gently touch Ryugu with its meter-long sample horn, fire a bullet made of tantalum into the surface, and capture the resulting cloud of dust and debris.
