New Nuclear Clock

From ScienceDaily (Mar. 8, 2012):
    A proposed new time-keeping system tied to the orbiting of a neutron around an atomic nucleus could have such unprecedented accuracy that it neither gains nor loses 1/20th of a second in 14 billion years -- the age of the Universe.
New technology may produce a clock 100 times more accurate than the best current Atomic clocks.
