The kilo is losing weight, changing all of science, but unfortunately we don’t know why

    Perhaps we should abandon the unreliable prototype and go back to the original definition of the kilogram as the mass of one liter (10x10x10cm cube) of water at 4 degrees Celcius.

    Unless the meter, or specific density or water, or degree Celcius also change.

    Yeah, I heard it could be because of gravity warping the weight.
