Atomic Clock to Be Attached to International Space Station

"Atomic Clock to Be Attached to International Space Station"," The PHARAO (Projet d'Horloge Atomique par Refroidissement d'Atomes en Orbite) atomic clock is to attached to the ISS in an effort to more accurately test Einstein's theory of relatively as well as increasing the accuracy of Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) amongst other geodesy experiments. PHARAO is to be launched by the European Space Agency (ESA) in 2013. By placing this accurate clock into orbit the effect of Earth's gravity is lessened allowing PHARAO to be more accurate than Earth based clock. These clocks have been around since the 1960's but their increasing development has paved the way for more and more advanced technologies. Computer networks receive time signals from atomic clocks via NTP time servers (Network Time Protocol) which can accurately synchronise a computer network to within a few milliseconds of UTC.
