Kredu tiujn, kiuj serĉas la veron. Dubu tiujn, kiuj trovas ĝin. -André Gide
An optical atomic clock built by the UK’s National Physical Laboratory. Its time-keeping mechanism is a trapped and cooled ion of strontium that “gives off a regular pulse of optical radiation exactly 444,779,044,095,485 times per second" when another laser causes it to oscillate between two energy states. One NPL scientist calls it "the Buddha".
