Atomic clocks

My Norwegian correspondent Tommy Toverud sent me some interesting links, including these to the Museum of Time and Frequency. This has a strange retro-feel to it – ‘atomic clock’ still sounds modern to me – but these are cool old new things.

I’ve borrowed a picture from the site. This is a picture of a General Radio Syncronometer model 1103-A

And this collection of Soviet space clocks is quite impressive.
