The Science of Time 2016: Time in Astronomy & Society, Past, Present and Future - Astrophysics and Space Science Proceedings 50 (Hardback)P. Kenneth Seidelmann (editor)
- We can order this
In this symposium speakers took a closer look at time in astronomy, other sciences, cultures, and business as a defining element of modern civilization. The symposium aimed to set the stage for future timekeeping standards, infrastructure, and engineering best practices for astronomers and the broader society. At the same time the program was cognizant of the rich history from Harrison's chronometer to today's atomic clocks and pulsar observations. The theoreticians and engineers of time were brought together with the educators and historians of science, enriching the understanding of time among both experts and the public.
