    This guy is a Nobel Prize winner. And he explains what time is and
    what a clock is so very well. And he explains the NIST atomic clock perfectly... Because he is the guy who made it! And then he came up
    with the new one.

    And it really is the coolest thing in the whole universe. Even when
    one introduces a "toss up".

    I guess nobody here wants to learn anything or examine what is known.

    I nodded off, then when I regained consciousness the progress bar was
    about 1/3 of the way into it.

    There was a moment when the speaker's left shoulder disappeared. And
    when the top of his head was stretching out into a point, that reminded
    me how the shadows of two approaching objects jump together right before
    the objects touch. I wonder what causes that.

    Or perhaps it is over their heads. Nice neutral tone there

    Thanks DL, it is truly expertly explained for
    non physicists. It suggests we have a future
    with even greater technologies.

    Though it is long, could have used
    a little editing, &/or be separated into 2 parts.
    Not sure why he had to take so much
    time with the "shrinking balloons" demo.

    Yeah, I think folks must think I mena that the video is cool, but
    the video is about the coolest thing, and that ain't the video
    itself.

    I found this video very interesting.
    And it is not the case of all the videos from the same source as far
    as I tried to watch them.
    William Phillips is really a good teacher and is enthusiasm is

    Agree,
    I've read many presentations from NIST.
    why do they all use Comic Sans font?
    Maybe that's how they make science "fun" ;-)
