Better thermometers might be possible as a result of a discovery, where physicists have found a way to calibrate temperature measurements by monitoring the tiny motions of a nanomechanical system that are governed by the often counterintuitive rules of quantum mechanics. (1)
Accuracy: The measure of how correct you are based on what you have defined as correct. Looks simple and yet… one can never be as much correct as he would like.
Defining things seems to be the way to build science and yet the only thing to which it has led us is more… definitions and even more failure to comply with them.
