Wow. These make the atomic clocks look like a unregulated cheap Chinese movement. Again, wow!

Indeed. It's rather like that time Mr. Spock told the computer to calculate to the last digit the numerical value of Pi. And I believe that CAPT Kirk's response was, "What in shit's-path-to-the-sewer are you doing, Spock?" Or something like that.

Wow, a very interesting read. Just think this will be here long after we have trashed the earth and move to Mars for like the third or fourth time. In between trashing Mars of course. Kind of makes you wonder, are we Human's, or Marians, which came first,,,,
