For those of you that follow the news, you might have heard about the
redefinition of the kilogram. In fact, it's a wider redefinition which
also includes the second among other things.
The Draft Resolution A "On the revision of the International System of
units (SI)" is found here:
This was adopted today, and I would recommend you to watch the
presentations that preceded the actual voting, as live transmitted and
also available for later viewing here:
I could spot at least two people I know in the room, and even more of
them had their name or photo included in the presentations.
The third presentation is on optical clocks, so it is highly relevant to
the list, but I think that all four presentation should be of interest
as it ties things together nicely.
PS. This week my IEEE Senior Member plaque finally came, and as
instructed and insisted by my boss, I hang it up in my office wall.
