The world's most accurate clock built

I'll bet when these physicists met for a meeting, everyone was on time.

Geez, with my record, I could use something like that.

Wilson, your one trillionth of a second late. You're fired!

If you've got absolutely nothing else to do, this is what you build.

if they are so accurate that they wouldn't lose time given the entire history of the universe, then they should be the last superclocks ever built.

why would you need more accuracy than that?

so your GPS is an inch more sensitive?!

They got way too much time on their hands. At least its accurate now.

Is it set on G.M.T. ? And when it was set what time did they set it from,a Rotary or a Seiko.or maybe Big Ben.

So wat year is it really?

It's actually immensly useful. Electronics work with time, no way around that. If you can get more accurate clock pulses you can create faster data rates, faster communications.

If scientific measurements can become more accurate this has further implications. For example the particle accelerator.

Communcation through and within space also needs very exact timing. The more exact the more we can all benefit from faster data rates.

If you know the exact timing of things that happen in space for example, you can more easily see if something changes within a certain period. Something you could miss if you're off by a certain time measurements.

Year One for the Atomic clock.But if you pass through the date line you either gain or lose a day,depends on which way you're going.I've lost 2 days.

Well... I dont think we are a thrillionth close to the very first atomic clocks accuracy with technology. What are the chances of us getting to this one? Waste of time... so to speak.

Technology is not what can be done(maybe for research purposes), it's how we(the public and everyone else) are limited by the companies(intel, seagate, western digital) producing the hardware which we use, thats the tech and thats where we are. Anything above that is either only and dream to come true and unavailable and unusable for a very long time. Why dont we have 40Peta Byte drives? because they control the world! They make every penny of every little bit from the public they can. Intel... Same Story. Here is a little itty bitty upgrade on the Hardware, we've already produced this 20 years ago, but here it is. Then waits for the product to sell out. and then again. Here is another itty bitty useless upgrade. Now buy this piece of crap. Give us 1000 Core 400GHZ CPU's and we'll be happy for life. Give us The Fastest Data rates possible on everything. They wont make money. Make money now and die off sadly over a year or 5. After that... nothing. Or give the public little bits of nothing, limiting new tech to be discovered even for themselves, but they Control The world.
