The international space station ISS gets a new atom clock!
Which registers the time much more exactly than existing equipment for time recording.
That was communicated by the European space travel organization ESA Tuesday.
The clock has a maximum deviation of 1 second in three hundred millions year time.
Japan will install the new equipment at the beginning of 2013 at the ISS.
With the atom clock, scientists want to examine the relativity theory of Albert Einstein.
