Being from a metrology background, I can understand the importance of this problem.

A few years back, the NIST (formerly the NBS) was working on an electrical representation for mass / force using a huge magnetic coil type device. I guess they still have not perfected this standard.

It basically would be a device that would exert a certain amount of force when a known current was passed through the coil...........

So a pair of United Kingdom scientists has come up with an elaborate 30-hour procedure, a combination of rinsing, ultraviolet light and heating that promises to return the kilo to its true mass.

They had better make it 29 hours to keep it out of the Obama non affordable health care clutches.

Leave it to science to make a mountain out of a mole hill.

The culprit is clearly gravitational increase brought on by mankind’s addiction to fossil fuels and flash suppressors, not to mention archaic, patrimonial definitions of marriage and the right of all women to be killed in the womb. Only Al Gore can save us now, or maybe Lance on Oprah.
