You have to watch this great video! 

Rachel Maddow, of the Rachel Maddow show on msnbc, celebrates World Metrology Day by exploring how measurement affects our lives. 

Also included in the segment is a great interview with Tom O’Brian, Chief of the Time and Frequency Division at NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology).
