Given a moment, determine the moment that would be after a gigasecond has passed.
A gigasecond is 10^9 (1,000,000,000) seconds.
Refer to the Installing Elm page for information about installing elm.
The first time you start an exercise, you'll need to ensure you have the appropriate dependencies installed. Thankfully, Elm makes that easy for you and will install dependencies when you try to run tests or build the code.
Execute the tests with:
Automatically run tests again when you save changes:
$ elm-test --watch
As you work your way through the test suite, be sure to remove the
calls from each test until you get them all passing!

It is possible to submit an incomplete solution so you can see how others have completed the exercise.

A huge amount can be learned from reading other people’s code. This is why we wanted to give exercism users the option of making their solutions public.
Here are some questions to help you reflect on this solution and learn the most from it.
