    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.
