First leap second added to UTC - June 30, 1972

"Today June thirtieth twenty twenty. The Day was June thirtieth nineteen seventy-two. At eleven fifty nine PM. In sixty seconds, a leap second was added to coordinate universal time to synchronize clocks with earth decelerating rotation. The second has been defied many different ways over the years at one point, it was defined as one eighty, six, thousand, four, hundred of the mean, solar day, but more precise measurement was needed because the length of day varies depending on many factors like seasonal daily weather variations as well as. In atmosphere tides. By nineteen, sixty seven, the second was defined as and I quote the duration of nine, billion, one, hundred, ninety, two, million, six, hundred, thirty, one, thousand, seven, hundred and seventy periods of the radiation, corresponding to the transition between the two hyper fine levels of the ground state of the Caesium went thirty three atom. This was the measurement that the international system of units or as I used since thin. The wording of the official definition has been updated slightly. Atomic clocks keep time with. Precision on atomic clocks, a day is exactly eighty six thousand four hundred PSI seconds. International Atomic time is a timescale that is computed by taking the weighted average of more than four hundred atomic clocks around the world. It's not connected to any astronomical observations. Universal time on the other hand is a time standard that is based on earth, rotation and astronomical observations coordinated universal time or ut is under the umbrella of universal time, which also includes ut zero ut, wine, ut, when our and ut to unlike other versions of Universal Time Utd is determined by International Atomic time. Though the practice of ut was already being coordinated internationally. The International Astronomical Union didn't adopt the name coordinated universal time until nineteen sixty seven. Coordinated. Universal time is the primary standard by which the world regulates time. But Earth's rotation as measured by UT, one is gradually slowing so that the length of a rotational day is about two milliseconds longer than the eighty six thousand four hundred seconds. It was two centuries ago. That means that there's a discrepancy between ut. See in ut wine. Scientists determined that Ut. To count for the difference between the definition of the second Earth's rotation, this keeps ut in line with the apparent position of the Sun and Stars in other words, a second would need to be added to or removed from clocks to realign them with patient occasionally. Scientists specified that you TC shows deviate more than nine tenths of a second from ut one so on June thirtieth nineteen, seventy, two. The I league second was added to ut. The international earth rotation in reference. System Service decides went at a leap. Second one is typically added either on June, thirtieth or December thirty first. From nine hundred seventy to one thousand, nine hundred nine leap seconds per at it at a rate of about one per year after that they've been added less frequently, there have been twenty-seven leap seconds since nineteen seventy two, the most recent leaf second was added on December Thirty First Twenty sixteen. Many people have called for the elimination of leaks, seconds, and the replacement of ut see with a new system leap seconds have caused problems for some computer systems since they're not that predictable can't be anticipated far in advance. And they'll need to be added more frequently as Earth's rotation continues to slow down. Some people who support abolishing leap seconds argue that it doesn't matter whether our perception of time changes along with the rotation of earth since that would happen over a long time anyway.

How Does Saturn Work?

"The Planet Saturn takes its name from a Roman God of agriculture and of all the planets revolve around our sun. It's cultivated if you will the greatest ring system by far shining rings filled with ice dust and rock orbit its equator. The whitest one called the phoebe ring has an outer edge. That's millions of miles away from Saturn itself. For comparison the average distance between Earth and our moon is a paltry two hundred thirty nine thousand miles or three hundred eighty four thousand kilometers once again. Astronomy PUTS THE HUMAN EGO IN CHECK. Saturn's rings get all the attention but we shouldn't ignore its other attributes the sixth planet in our solar system. It's also the biggest after Jupiter. Those two are in a league of their own. If you mushed every planet from Mercury to Neptune together Saturn and Jupiter would account for over ninety percent of the cumulative mass of that planetary mass but despite its immense size Saturn is the least dense planet in the sun's orbit and the spherical to. We'll need to look at. Its physical makeup to understand why research published in two thousand nineteen showed that a day on Saturday and lasts just ten hours thirty three minutes and thirty eight seconds. It's spin rate helps explain one of the ring. World's stranger qualities is he. Saturn is ten percent wider than it is tall. A difference of over seven thousand miles or nearly twelve thousand kilometers. Astronomers call that kind of disparity an equatorial bulge every planet in the solar system has one but Saturn's is the most extreme saturn rotates around its axis at a very high speed. Hence the brevity stays. And here's where density comes into play like. Jupiter Saturn is a gas giant such worlds predominantly consists of hydrogen and helium and whereas Earth is solid on. The outside gas. Giants are not they may however have hard intercourse now. Saturn is downright huge in terms of volume. Some seven hundred sixty four earth sized objects could fit inside of it and the planet is ninety five times as massive as our home world and yet relative to its size. Earth is eight times more dense. In fact water yes. Plain water is denser them Saturn although that doesn't mean the planet would float. It's not cohesive enough so thanks to its low. Low density zippy rotational. Speed Saturn's been deformed into a oblong world that looks kind of squished in profile Jupiter's southern hemisphere famously has an ongoing storm called the great. Red Spot Saturn's answer to. This is the great white spots which are periodic tempests that arise every twenty thirty Earth Years I detected in eighteen seventy six. These weather events are colossal scale ness as Cassini spacecraft spent thirteen productive years hovering around Saturn on December fifth of two thousand ten. It witnessed the most recent iteration of the great white spot phenomenon. The storm was about eight hundred miles by sixteen hundred miles long when it first began. That's about thirteen hundred twenty five hundred kilometers but over the next six months. The spot expanded Longitudinal early until it had looped itself around the planet in a gigantic circle. Some researchers think the great white spots might be part of a cycle that sees the outer layer Saturn's atmosphere slowly lose heat allowing the warm air from lower levels to burst upward. Meanwhile Saturn's North Pole. There's a cloud pattern shaped like giant hexagon. This pleasantly symmetrical jet stream spins counterclockwise measures about twenty thousand miles or thirty two thousand kilometers across and includes a hurricane. That's been swirling right over the poll ever since it was discovered back in Nineteen eighty-eight. Of course it's not the hexagon earned Saturday. A place on. Chucky festers T. shirt you know from rugrats anyway. The gas giant is most famous for the spectacular ring system encircling it a planetary rings aren't rare per se Jupiter Uranus and Neptune. Have the well yet. In terms of sheer scale network around Saturn is totally unrivaled. Most of the primary rings come with letter names. The closest one to Saturn is called the D ring which has an inner radius of about forty two thousand miles or sixty seven thousand kilometers a lot closer than our moon. It's surrounded by these C B A F G and earrings in that order by the way. The rings aren't arranged Alphabetically. Because the naming system reflects the dates of their discovery Abmc recited before the rest when measured from its outside edge. The earring showcases an impressive. Three hundred thousand mile radius or four hundred and eighty thousand kilometers. Or at least that looks impressive until you get to know the big bad fearing that. We mentioned earlier. I spotted in two thousand nine. This one was named after one of Saturn's moons untold trillions of ice rock dust particles. Make up these rings. Some bits are the size of a sugar grain. Others could probably Dwarf Your House in any case. The ring material is stretched. Remarkably thin Saturn's rings may be as thick as two miles or kilometers wide. Found just thirty two feet or ten meters wide so proportionately. The gas giants iconic rings thinner than a typical sheet of writing paper as noted by Astronomer. Phil plait whereas Saturn itself is probably around four point five billion years old. The age of its rings isn't as clear. Some scientists think that they were formed ten million to a hundred million years ago when an icy comet or some ice covered moons came too close to the planet. The visitor or visitors would have met a grisly end. Getting ripped to pieces by Saturn's gravity as those fragments collided they grew smaller and multiplied giving rise to the skinny but brilliant system. We all know today on the other. Hand a twenty. Nineteen paper argued that the rings might have originated at an earlier stage in the history of our solar system. We'll have to see how the debate unfolds as new evidence arises. There's lots about this planet that we're still learning in October of two thousand. Nineteen the international astronomical. Union heralded the discovery of twenty newfound moons orbiting the gas giant with these bodies added to the mix. There are now eighty two verified. Saturn moons altogether no other planet in the solar system has that many natural satellites not even mighty Jupiter. You can find Saturn's moons in around and beyond the ring system before Cassini was retired in two thousand seventeen it revealed that some of them gather clumps of ice and dust. From the Rings Saturn's Moon Titan is especially well-named it's our solar system second-biggest moon overall and it's dotted with seas lakes and rivers of liquid methane and pain. There's only one other body within the Sun's orbit that has standing pools of liquid that we know about. And here's a hint. You're sitting on it right now. Tighten is also noteworthy for having an atmosphere and it's theorized that there could be ice volcanoes that spew water instead of lava like Earth Saturn gets auroras at its poles. They're invisible to the unaided human eye. But the Cassini spacecraft and the Hubble Space Telescope have captured footage of them using infrared and ultraviolet

"So and indeed I was impressed when the international astronomical union just recently dedicated a crater to the earth rise event itself, which is in the field view of the of the now, I kinda girth rise Votto, mold handers earth rise. We know what I want to take a quick call here. If I may let's go to Todd who's calling from Springfield, Ohio. Todd you're on the air with Bill. Anders. Good day. I mean, what an amazing adventure? I couldn't even there's so many questions, but how did the whole admit, and you just touched on it some affect you on a spiritual level. I mean, I can't imagine not only just going through such a wild experience. But turning around and seeing that how how did that change your look at God? We'll Todd I I don't wanna get into religious abate. But one thing certainly clear that if you see the earth it's about the size of your fist at arm's length. It doesn't take much of a mathematician to figure at Ken arm's length. You're you're the earth would be about the size of marble, and at one hundred arm's length it would be down to being about the size of a lady bug. You wouldn't have to and those are distances are hardly anywhere in space. So one thing that that press me is that even though the earth is physically insignificant. It certainly is important to humanity. But it also is very small, and it's not it impressed me that we go around a rather insignificant stark all the sun in a relatively insignificant glaxy, you know, we're not the center of the universe, and you can take that. You know, about any way you want to. But we definitely are out on the edge of almost nowhere in space. We know that photo that you took that captured so perfectly the truth of our fragility in his universe. You know in nineteen sixty eight it couldn't have come at a better time. Right. I mean, sixty eight was such a tumultuous year for the United States at the very least with the assassination of doctor king the assassination of Robert Kennedy, just political upheaval left. And right. I know that that I think it was commanded Borman that received a four word telegram after the Apollo eight mission ended saying thanks you saved nineteen sixty eight. Did you did you get that sense? Maybe after splashing back down on earth in in the days and weeks months that followed. Well, we had been almost is elated by the political turmoil. Because. Spinning you know, just almost continuous time in simulators. But of course, I knew the trouble the country was going through. Indeed, I had a lot of friends over in Vietnam. We were being shot up where I would be had it not been for my my pollen duties, but indeed it was it, you know, sixty eight even then it was pretty clear about the only positive thing that was happening in the world. It makes me wonder if we could do something about two thousand eighteen to be quite might be might be more than Apollo to fix this when. Yeah. Well, but on that note, we've got about it just got a couple of minutes here. Mr anders. This is the thing that always gives me hope about the US space program the troubles as it might be and costly as it might be it still provides us with scientific knowledge. The ability to explore and these moments photographic or otherwise, it really bring us all together as people. So are you are you happy with the where the US space program is now, and where would you like to see ago? Well, yes, and no about happiness. I think the unmanned program both from a practical point of view whether satellites and communication satellites, many others. You know, is is moving right along the scientific program. Mars Lander Rovers that Chinese putting us. Leo telescope on the back side of the moon. I think that's great but the unmanned program, which is very expensive. But indeed catches the yield the attention of humans more than unmanned spacecraft. It's so expensive, and and yet has been bit of a letdown the shuttle program never lived up to its to its advertise potential. It was supposed to have you know, one or two flights who a month, then they got down to one or two year the space station, which was. And to be a place for the shuttle to go in a shuttle headed to have an needed to shuttle to get there. I think those were serious political mistakes..
