Earthquakes and the Moon with Hany Fahim

Presentation on Saturday at 2:50 p.m. to 3:20 p.m. in Room 1180.

Timekeeping is no easy business. This talk tells the story of how earthquakes and even the Moon force the concept of the "leap second", and the debacle in 2012 that took down most of the Internet. It also goes into some detail at how Python is handling this scenario.
