Time for the New Year

Hello World!
Can you believe the year is nearly over? Where did the time go? What is time anyway and how will you celebrate? Here are some cool facts about time- taken from
Do you know the Egyptians are believed to have started recording time? They have the oldest device known to humans and it still works! We move to Roman times for more time history, have you ever wondered what AM and PM stand for? "These abbreviations stand for ante meridiem, before midday, and post meridiem, after midday.... A day is defined as 86,400 seconds, and a second is officially defined as 9,192,631,770 oscillations of a cesium-133 atom in an atomic clock." Science is historical as well as fun! Want to learn more? Here is a link to the international association for the study of time, journals meeting and more await you. Until next time, Happy New Year!
