The Fastest Clock in the World

Craft & Design Technology

How fast is the fastest clock in the world? Well, this one measures time to a millionth of a second. I really like Freddie Yauner’s work, especially The Fastest Clock in the World.

    Its a more accurate clock not a faster clock. Title is wrong.

      You are right!

      I guess all clocks really should be running at the same speed.

  2. Dave says:

    Speed and precision are two different things. If this clock is measuring an hour faster than others, then it is probably either broken or involved in a relativity experiment…

    Gravity and other distortions of space time can change the flow of time so your wrong

      I was just on Google looking for facts about the speed of time!

    Not more accurate, but more precise.

    Maybe it could be used for measuring 100metres track records?
    I can imagine the headlines – another 2 millionths of a second have been shaved off the record by……

    Clocks used in relativity experiments often measure times to the billionths of a second so I’m not sure how this clock can be considered the fastest in the world.
