10,000 Year Clock Being Built

Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos is helping to fund a special project that will make a clock tick for 10,000 years, embedded inside a mountain. The project involves thinkers, inventors, and investors, and the idea is for the clock to tick once a year, keeping time for the next 10,000 years.

The clock will most likely be installed in a chamber within a cave deep in the Sierra Diablo Mountains in West Texas. The clock was originally thought by the inventor, Danny Hillis and a non-profit group called the Long Now Foundation.
