In the June 25th issue of Science, CSIRO astronomer George Hobbs and colleagues in the UK, Germany and Canada report that they have taken a big step towards solving a 30-year-old puzzle: why the “cosmic clocks” called pulsars aren’t perfect.

While airplane and rocket experiments have proved that gravity makes clocks tick more slowly – a central prediction of Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity – a new experiment in an atom interferometer measures this slowdown 10,000 times more accurately than before, and finds it to be exactly what Einstein predicted.

Word of the Day
filiation
  • The relation of a son or daughter to a parent: the correlative of paternity.
  • The establishment of a filial relation, specifically by adoption.
  • In law, the judicial determination of the paternity of a child, especially of a bastard; affiliation.
The word 'filiation' comes from a Latin word meaning 'legal right of a son'.
