"Today’s most precise time measurements are performed with optical atomic clocks, which achieve a precision of about 10-18, corresponding to 1 second uncertainty in more than 15 billion years, a time span which is longer than the age of the universe... Despite such stunning precision, these clocks could be outperformed by a different type of clock, the so called “nuclear clock”... The expected factor of improvement in precision of such a new type of clock has been estimated to be up to 100, in this way pushing the ability of time measurement to the next level."

"Secrets of the Universe"

2Physics.com is partnering with K2 Communications, a global leader in the production and distribution of IMAX films, which is currently working on the production of a IMAX 3D documentary film titled "Secrets of the Universe". K2 Communications has been commissioned by the National Science Foundation (NSF) by way of a substantial grant to promote the pursuit of an education and/or career in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) by inspiring an appreciation for science through the amazing discoveries in the world of particle physics.

The plan is to do this through a spectacular IMAX 3D experience titled "Secrets of the Universe" that will explore some of the most elusive and fascinating phenomena in the cosmos under investigation at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Geneva, Switzerland, and explain today’s advance scientific discoveries in layman's terms. With greater understanding and enthusiasm from the general public, we can expect greater support and progress for STEM.

The film will address, more specifically, the exciting possibilities for discovery during the second run currently under way at the LHC: research on dark matter, antimatter, and parallel universes that has the potential to turn science fiction into science fact. Perhaps most importantly, it will feature the science and engineering feat that is the Large Hadron Collider - arguably humankind’s greatest machine - as a monument to how technology and research build off each other to create perpetual progress.

Multiple award-winning Director Stephen Low – a veteran of more than 15 giant screen documentaries – will lead the film team that includes the highly acclaimed IMAX cinematographer Sean Phillips.
