Weight Driven Clocks
This is actually how GPS works. Satellites pinpoint your location on Earth by precisely measuring how long it takes a radio signal to bounce from your phone back to space. Engineers already use early versions of these clocks to remotely steer spacecraft through our solar system.
For example, if a spacecraft is making its way to Mars, NASA checks its trajectory by pinging it with a fleet of Earth-based radio antennae. When the radio signal reaches the spacecraft, it immediately bounces back to Earth. That time measurement allows NASA engineers to calculate the location and speed of the spacecraft to then instruct it how to move. But this process is cumbersome. NASA has a limited number of space antennae, which means sometimes its operational spacecraft have to wait in line to talk to ground control.
For example, a spacecraft near Mars has to wait up to 40 minutes sometimes to communicate with the antennae. So they want to speed up this process by putting atomic clocks directly on spacecraft. In this setup, the spacecraft could calculate its trajectory on board autonomously after receiving an initial ping from the Earth radio antennae. They think that this would enable more spacefaring missions. They will keep the clock in space for a year to monitor its functionality, and eventually, they hope to put a version of this clock on future NASA orbiters.
Better clocks also improve astronomical imaging. A type of atomic clock known as a hydrogen maser was key to producing the first image of the black hole released in April.

The black hole is so small in our sky —literally the size that a doughnut on the moon would appear from Earth—that astrophysicists needed eight observatories on four different continents looking simultaneously to see it. One other thing to consider, if someone is going to work on the clock, it might be a good idea to have the movement cleaned, lubed, and adjusted while they are working on it.
That will run some money but you should be able to get some info on the clock as well. Just my 2 cents.

I moved this over to clock repair for more input. John Arrowood Registered User. Dec 14, 83 You might try cutting a piece of a wire hanger long enough to hang a foot or so below the clock, bend both ends of wire into hooks and hook one end on the hook on the chain and the other end of the wire on the hook on the weight and start the clock running. If the chain hooks aren't completely jammed the wire will allow eough space for the weight to hang free and should pull the chains down enough to allow removing the wire and hooking the weights back on their proper chain hooks.
This method has worked for me when I have pulled the chains up too far and the weights can't drop straight down. Dave T likes this. Oct 21, 4, 81 48 Country Flag:. If you can get to the ratchet and click. Release it and pull the chain back down. He rubs us the wrong way. There is a war. The war has manifested itself with man warring against man. There is also a war of man against God. We want to go our own way free of God.

Our world is chaotic and disturbed for countless reasons. What has happened to the song in our heart free of worry and anxiety?
Relationship is the key. A relationship between you and God and not between you, someone else, and God. To sing and whistle again. It can happen through peace with God.
