New Clock Calculates Time Using Mass
Helen Jeong, Cosmos Magazine
American scientists have developed a novel method of measuring time that may hint at its fundamental origins, and is an “exciting prospect” for replacing the international standard for the kilogram.
Their new method allowed the researchers to directly measure time from mass and vice versa—a new finding which could potentially revolutionise our current clocks and mass scales, as well as help recalibrate the kilogram.
