Time lords: The clocks that rule our world - BBC News

Time is money – and never was this clearer than at 09:59:59. 985 Eastern Time, on 3 June 2013. Due to a glitch in its time-keeping, the news agency Reuters accidentally released trading data just 15 milliseconds early. The most accurate clocks can tick for more than 300 million years without losing a beat – and that is by no means the limit. The invention of the mechanical clock revolutionised sea-faring, for instance – since they allowed sailors to estimate their longitude, and in doing so it fuelled the age of discovery and colonialism. Even the best mechanical clock would not be suitable for today’s standards, however. A grandfather clock, for instance, loses about 15 seconds a day – an eon in comparison to the accuracy achieved by our gold standard, atomic clocks. The microwaves are tuned so that they are completely absorbed and then re-emitted by the caesium – which theory tells us should happen when the microwaves reach a frequency of precisely 9,192,631,770 oscillations per second. Measuring those oscillations therefore offers a very precise “tick” that is used to gauge the passing of time – in much the same way that the regular.

Record breaking clock invented which only loses a second in 15bn years - The Guardian

The “optical lattice” clock, which uses strontium atoms, is now three times more accurate than a year ago when it set the previous world record, its developers reported in the journal Nature Communications. The advance brings science a step closer to replacing the current gold standard in timekeeping: the caesium fountain clock that is used to set Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), the official world time. The world’s official unit of time, the second, has since 1967 been determined by the vibration frequency of an atom of the metallic element Caesium 133 – a method of measurement similar to monitoring the pendulum swings of a grandfather clock. The instrument used to set international time is the caesium fountain clock, which has improved significantly over the decades and can keep time to within one second over 100 million years. But new, experimental optical clocks that work with strontium atoms at optical frequencies much higher than the microwave frequencies used in caesium clocks, have been shown in recent years to be even more accurate.

Movies in brief: 'The Salvation,' 'Spring,' 'Merchants of Doubt,' 'Deli Man' - Minneapolis Star Tribune

In English and subtitled Danish and Spanish. Mads Mikkelsen stars as Jon, a Danish settler in the 1870s U. S. West. After seven years apart, he’s joined by his wife and 8-year-old son in Black Creek — named for the sticky oil polluting the water — to begin a new life. Only Jon’s skill as a rifleman and his capacity to survive vicious attacks can punish the wicked. As the town’s toadying mayor and undertaker, the superb English character actor Jonathan Pryce is brown-nosed merchant slickness incarnate. The sheriff, a dead-on performance by Scotland’s Douglas Henshall, is a collared priest likelier to shoot souls dead than save them. Mikkelsen, flawless as usual, begins as a craggy, weary foreigner but returns for bloody reprisal like one of the unkempt, unshaven antiheroes that launched Clint Eastwood’s stardom. Like Eastwood, he has only one expression, but it’s sensational. Director Kristian Levring beings it all back: the weathered towns, the shootings, the railroad, the blinding sunlit vistas, and the most vicious eye-for-an-eye revenge west of the Mississippi. Even when we know the familiar iconography and storytelling tropes of old American classics that are thundering.
