Atomic Clock to Check Einstein, October 1959 Popular Electronics

There once was a
Miss Fanny Bright
Whose speed was much
greater than light
She set out one day
In a relative way
And arrived the previous night

Albert Einstein published his paper on Special Relativity in 1905 and on General Relativity in 1916. Since that time, many experiments have been performed worldwide by scientists intent on both proving and disproving Mr. Einstein. Laser and nuclear based timepieces have been improved for precision and calculations refined to aid in the task. Nearly 100 years later, General Relativity stands. Even the rigors of quantum mechanics has not toppled its precepts...
