The solar system The earliest time measuring devices used either the shadow cast by the Sun or the rate which water runs out of a vessel. Both methods were in use before the earliest historical records. Early systems for dividing the day and night into 'hours' used a simple division into twelve parts regardless of season. The familiar use of hours, each of identical length, only came into use in the 15th and 16th centuries with the spread of mechanical clocks. In the seventeenth century the pendulum clock was developed and by the 18th century clocks were sufficiently accurate for them to be employed at sea for determining longitude and for scientific time measurement. The fundamental accurate timekeeper, however, was the rotation rate of the Earth and clocks were kept on time by means of astronomical observations. The development of the pendulum clock reached its climax early this century with the Free Pendulum clocks which had an accuracy of about a second a year. Their use indicated the non-uniformity of the Earth's rotation. They were succeeded by quartz crystal controlled clocks and subsequently by clocks using an atomic transition of very accurately known frequency. The second was redefined using this frequency and clocks can now be made which are accurate to one second in thousands of years.

Ninfinger Productions: Trinity Site The National Atomic Museum's history of the first Atomic bomb test at Trinity Site in New Mexico. http://www.ninfinger.org/~sven/trinity/trin_brochure.html
Extractions: This text and photos are from the brochure handed out during our Trinity site tour. It is issued by the US Department of Energy, National Atomic Museum in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The document is dated January 1994. Trinity Site On Monday morning July 16, 1945, the world was changed forever when the first atomic bomb was tested in an isolated area of the New Mexico desert. Conducted in the final month of World War II by the top-secret Manhattan Engineering District, this test was code named Trinity. The Trinity test took place on the Alamogordo Bombing and Gunnery Range, about 230 miles south of the Manhattan Project's headquarters at Los Alamos, New Mexico. Today this 3,200 square mile range, partly located in the desolate Jornada del Muerto Valley, is named the White Sands Missile Range and is actively used for non-nuclear weapons testing. Before the war the range had been public and private grazing land that had always been thinly populated. During the war it was even more lonely and deserted because the ranchers had vacated their homes in January 1942. They left because the land had been withdrawn by the War Department for use as an artillery and bombing practice area shortly after the December 7, 1941, Japaneses attack on Pearl Harbor. In September 1944, a remote 18 by 24 square mile portion of the northeast corner of the Bombing Range was selected for the Trinity test by the military. The selection of this remote location in the Jornada del Muerto (Journey of Death) Valley for the Trinity test was from an initial list of eight possible test sites. Besides the Jornada, three of the other seven sites were also located in New Mexico: the Tularosa Basin near Alamogordo, the lava beds (now the El Malpais National Monument) south of Grants, and an area southwest of Cuba and north of Thoreau. Other possible sites not located in New Mexico were: an Army training area north of Blythe, California, in the Mojave Desert; San Nicolas Island (one of the Channel Islands) off the coast of Southern California; and on Padre Island south of Corpus Christi, Texas, in the Gulf of Mexico. The last choice was in the beautiful San Luis Valley of south central Colorado, new today's Great Sand Dunes National Monument.

Extractions: Printer Friendly Version E-Mail This Article Published on Friday, December 12, 2003 by the Agence France Presse Hiroshima Survivors Slam US as Atomic Bomber Enola Gay Goes On Show WASHINGTON - Fifty-eight years after they were engulfed by a firestom set off by a US atom bomb, Hiroshima blast survivors pleaded with the United States to honor their pain before the plane used in the raid goes on public display. Three aging Hiroshima victims travelled from Japan to lodge written protests with President George W. Bush and the National Air and Space Museum, before the bomber, dubbed Enola Gay, goes on display to the public on Monday. Brig. General Paul W. Tibbets, USAF (Ret.), formerly commander of the 509th Composite Group and pilot of the Enola Gay stands before the Enola Gay on display at the National Air and Space Musuem. Exhibition of the plane has always been controversial and Japanese survivors say they want the new exhibit to focus more on the suffering caused by the bomb that destroyed Hiroshima on August 6, 1945.
