New Scientist - ATOMIC clocks are the basis of GPS devices, they define the official length of the second and recently played a role in tracking subatomic particles that seemingly travelled faster than the speed of light. Now this "ultimate" timekeeper has a rival: a new method for making nuclear clocks suggests such devices could be 60 times as accurate as their atomic rivals.
