National Cybersecurity Awareness Month officially kicks off today. In coming weeks, federal officials are expected to launch a number of public programs to raise awareness of the importance of securing the nation's computer networks for both government and private industry. But some officials also are using it as an opportunity to ask, "Where will the cybersecurity workers of tomorrow come from?"
Scientists have known for decades that time passes faster at higher elevations—a curious aspect of Einstein's theories of relativity that previously has been measured by comparing clocks on the Earth's surface and a high-flying rocket. Now, physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology have measured this effect. NIST's Till Rosenband has details.
