Leap Second on Saturday Will Cause 61-Second Minute |

Hmm... So, this tells me... That all of the Atomic Clocks in the World are Wrong! After all... The Whole Concept of Time, itself. Revolves around the Earths Revolutions and it's Orbits around the Sun. Right??? So, what ever 'Time" it takes to Happen. That's what Our Time is...


Leap Second on Saturday Will Cause 61-Second Minute

Date: 29 June 2012 Time: 05:30 AM ET

The transition from June to July will be delayed by circumstances beyond everyone's control. Time will stand still for one second on Saturday evening (June 30) because a "leap second" will be added to let a lagging Earth catch up to super-accurate clocks.

International Atomic Time is a very accurate and stable time scale. It is a weighted average of the time kept by about 200 atomic clocks in over 50 national laboratories worldwide. Atomic time is measured through vibrations of atoms in a metal isotope that resembles mercury and can keep time to within a tenth of a billionth of a second per day. The result is extremely accurate time that can be used to improve synchronization in precision navigation and positioning systems, telecommunications networks and deep-space communications.

But from their careful observations of the positions of the stars, astronomers have deduced that Earth's rotation is ever so slightly slowing down at a non-uniform rate, probably attributable to its sloshing molten core, the rolling of the oceans, the melting of polar ice and the effects of solar and lunar gravity.
