Today's winner Is: Sherry Akins, 14, Fort Worth, Texas The two main units of time that we have are the day and the year. They are both determined by the movement of the earth. The spinning of the earth on its axis gives us the solar (sun) day. The journey of the I earth around the sun gives usj the solar year. The solar day is divided into twenty-four hours. The hour Is divided into 60 minutes, and the minute into 60 seconds. Actual- y, the length of a solar day varies. One reason for this is changes in the earth's speed around the sun. But even though each solar day is sometimes onger, sometimes shorter than exactly 24 hours, we say that ;he mean (average) solar day s 24 hours. For convenience In locating places, man has marked off 3ie earth into meridians, circles that run through the poles. Places that are on the same meridian have the same solar time. Places- that are east or west of each other have different solar time. The difference in solar time is one hour for each meridian. There is a meridian that runs through Greenwich, England, that is numbered 0. It is called the prime meridian. This is the starting point, and all other meridians are marked off east and west of Greenwich. Clock time the whole world over is based on mean solar time at Greenwich. Astronomers at Greenwich Observatory check their clocks against the sim or v a particular star. They check the exact time when the sun or the star crosses the meridian. Observatories in other countries also keep track of the correct time. They broadcast time signals by radio. In the United States, the Naval Observatory in Washington, B.C., determines the correct time. The clocks used for keeping the correct time are special kinds. The United States Naval Observatory uses quartz-crystal controlled clocks. The electric motors in such clocks are controlled by the vibrations of the quartz crystals. The clocks keep time to within 1/500 second per day! FUN TIME The Chuckle Box Ron: Did you meet your uncle at the railroad station? Steve: No, I've known him for years.
