Size matters! A Timely subject...


People toss numbers around without realizing the magnitude of their size. For instance, the lonely second.

1 hundred seconds is about 1.6 minutes

1 thousand seconds is about 16.6 minutes

1 million seconds is about 11 days.

1 billion seconds is about 32.5 years.

1 trillion seconds is about 31,688 years.

And the humble second is no longer 1/86,400th of a day. Due to days not always being 24 hours and the moon stealing our angular momentum and GPS satellites requiring very accurate time, the second is now defined as...

Quote
...being equal to the time duration of 9 192 631 770 periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the fundamental unperturbed ground-state of the caesium-133 atom.

And this is almost relevant...
