A rock is a clock: physicist uses matter to tell time

A very special clock that can measure time on the basis of the mass of a single atomic or even subatomic particle holds promise not only for ultraprecise measurements of mass and time, but also for such exotic applications as testing Einstein's general theory of relativity, or the effects of gravity on antimatter.
