61-Second Minute Arrives Today

The National Institute of Standards and Technology is giving you a gift today: the gift of time. It might not be much time, but what you do with that one second could be monumentalů..or not. big grin If you have an atomic clock, check the time closely between 7:58 and 8:00 pm ET to see how your clock handles the change.

Today's events mark the 25th time, in total, that a leap second has been added to the official time in an effort to balance our timekeeping with the Earth's deceleration in rotation.
