Accurate Clock to Record the Age of the Earth

The team of scientists in Colorado claims to have created the most accurate clock in the world. Hours are made at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the clock can record 13.7 billion year age of the Earth in four seconds. Patrick Gill, one of the scientists said they created the optical clock to monitor the trapped atoms sway aluminum atoms 27.

"At these two times more accurate than the previous version made in 2008," a high degree of accuracy is due to the atomic clock at the clock frequency is rocking on the waves of light rather than microwaves. Thus, the atoms can divide time into smaller intervals. "At this kind can help catch any small changes that occur at any time. It's just amazing," explained Gill.
