Science by Email | Clocks, Mummification: " Ticking away
It’s a question that millions of people ask every day: ‘What’s the time?’ Knowing the time is an essential part of everyday life and important to scientific research as well.
Depending on their field of research, scientists are interested in time in different ways. A chemist might study what happens in the first second of a chemical reaction, while an astrophysicist might be interested in the origins of the Universe, billions of years ago. Regardless of what they’re studying, scientists often need good ways of measuring time."
