The new atomic clock loses only one second every 300 billion years

A group of physicists announced the best performance atomic clocks since when.

The instrument is said to measure time so accurately that it will only lose a second every 300 billion years, allowing for more precise measurements of gravitational waves, dark matter and other physical phenomena. A study based on research led by the University of Wisconsin-Madison was published Wednesday (February 16) in the journal Nature.
