TAI[edit]

TAI is a coordinate time scale used to define UTC. Should we mention that here? Martin Hogbin (talk) 08:43, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

CT vs UTC[edit]

Is the Coordinate time of JPL Horizons the same discussed here? Can that be discussed if so or not ? 121.247.254.42 (talk) 23:53, 25 October 2011 (UTC)

This article is about the general subject of 'coordinate time'. There are many different coordinate times in use. As far as I can tell the 'coordinate time' used by JPL is based on their own coordinate system. The JPL site says that it is always within 0.002 sec of Terrestrial Time.

Introduction?[edit]

The 'introduction' section below the box isn't an introduction. It reads like a continuation of the opening. The second section below the box is more like an introduction.
