Description

<a href="http://on.aol.com/video/paris-time-lords-extend-greek-deadline-518915840"> </a> Tuesday June 30, 2015 will be one second longer than usual. The extra second - added right before midnight GMT, is called a "leap second". It's to align the official world time, guarded by atomic clocks, to the rotation of the planet which is gradually slowing down, explains Daniel Gambis of the International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service.
