Given an age in seconds, calculate how old someone would be on:
- Earth: orbital period 365.25 Earth days, or 31557600 seconds
- Mercury: orbital period 0.2408467 Earth years
- Venus: orbital period 0.61519726 Earth years
- Mars: orbital period 1.8808158 Earth years
- Jupiter: orbital period 11.862615 Earth years
- Saturn: orbital period 29.447498 Earth years
- Uranus: orbital period 84.016846 Earth years
- Neptune: orbital period 164.79132 Earth years
So if you were told someone were 1,000,000,000 seconds old, you should be able to say that they're 31.69 Earth-years old.

Running the tests
To run the tests run the command
go test from within the exercise directory.
If the test suite contains benchmarks, you can run these with the
go test -bench .
Keep in mind that each reviewer will run benchmarks on a different machine, with different specs, so the results from these benchmark tests may vary.
