Adrian Cho writes, at ScienceNOW:

According to Einstein’s theory of relativity, a clock on the floor ought to run very slightly slower than an identical one on top of a step stool because the lower clock nestles deeper into Earth’s gravitational field. Now, physicists have demonstrated this effect using two super-accurate clocks and hoisting one several centimeters above the other. It’s the first time scientists have used clocks to show that time flies faster for your nose than for your navel.
