Scientists are about to change what a kilogram is. That’s massive.

Move over Kilogramme. Born in 1899 you have ruled the metric mass for more than a century. You are getting on in years and started losing weight. Quantum Physiscs is muscling in. Make way for Planck's Constant that does not vary with location or time.
I feel nostalgic. The standard ruler for length gave way to speed of light in vacuum.
It is now the turn of mass.
The moving finger writes and having writ moves on...
