Physical Stuff:

   After 1967 standard for the time is created. Before that year people use the sun as a standard for the time. The successive measurement of the time interval between the sun at its highest meridian point.
At the year of 1967 scientists adopted the atomic model as a time standard. One standard time is recorded as 9192630770 periods of the radiation corresponding undisturbed transition between hyperfine levels of the Cesium-133.

Atomic clocks are based on this principle mostly the error in one second can occur only around 5000 years.
