A leap second will be introduced to the UTC to the world`s atomic clocks between 7.59.59 am and 8.00.00am (Hong Kong time) on July 1, 2012.
The last minute of June 30, 2012 is destined to be 61 seconds long, as timekeepers will add a “leap second” to compensate for the wibbly-wobbly movements of our world.
An international body has decided to postpone adding an extra second - called the ‘leap’ second.
Without the leap second, hi-tech clocks would race ahead of solar time, leading to an error of 15 s every 100 years.
