    What was wrong with GMT. For centuries we have refered to stand time as Greenwich Mean Time. GMT has, for years been the standard measure of time differences all over the world + or – minutes or hours in front or behind the time at the Greenwich Observatory London.

    With North America now being the centre of the Universe we now refer to this as UTC or Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) – Work that one out!

    Perhaps the next in line for a change is the International Date Line (IDL)…????

    • Essentially UTC and GMT are the same. UTC accounts for leap seconds instead of leap days (commonly referred to as leap years), where the extra day every four years will not be necessary as the time has been accounted for. Because of this it is far more accurate based on the world’s rotation. An orbital year, being 365.2564 days, leaves a .0064 day (about 9 min 13 seconds) error in the GMT-based time system. What it boils down to is that UTC was invented for nerds like us who would rather set their clocks to time.nist.gov instead of our favorite TV station’s schedule.
