    Hello all,

    I went to a large bookstore yesterday and tried to find this supplement. Couldn't find it. Does anyone have any further information on it, such as date etc...

    Regards,

    Richard T.

    I just got around to getting a copy yesterday at Barnes and Noble Books. It was next to the regular Scientific American magazine, but for some reason were facing backwards, so it took me a while to find it. Anyhow, the title is "A Matter of Time", display until June 26, so you should have time to find it. It is $5.95 US/ $7.95 Canada. At the top it has "Special Edition, Scientific American". It is ISSN 1048-0943 Volume 16, Number 1, 2006. You can order them through the mail for $10.95 in US/ $13.95. 92 pages. Their website is www.sciam.com.

    Chapter titles are: Real Time, That Mysterious Flow, A Hole in the Heart of Physics, How to build a time machine, Time and the twin paradox, From Instantantaneous to Eternal, Times of our lives, Remembering When, Clocking Cultures, A Chronical of Timekeeping, Ultimate Clocks, Inconstant Constants, The Myth of the Beginning of time, Atoms of Space and Time. There is only one advertisement, and only a few clocks are pictured (one is a replica of John Harrison's H1).

    Andy (haven't read it yet).
