What are Atomic Clocks?

Atomic clocks are the most accurate clocks known to man - and probably to dinosaurs, too. Physicists have created an atomic clock that could run for 3.7 billion years without gaining or losing a second - though it's hardly for home use!

If you're new to atomic clocks, don't worry, hitting the snooze won't cause an explosion. A home atomic clock is so-called because it automatically synchronizes its time via radio signals. In North America, it's the WWVB Atomic Clock time signal from Colorado that ensures up-to-the-second accuracy.
