A clock that will last forever: Researchers propose a way to build the first space-time crystal
(Phys.org)—Imagine a clock that will keep perfect time forever, even after the heat-death of the universe. This is the "wow" factor behind a device known as a "space-time crystal," a four-dimensional crystal ...
