Longitude

In the mid-1800s, leaders met from all over the world and agreed on a line going north and south through Greenwich, England, as 0 degrees longitude, the Prime Meridian. This enabled time to be standardized around the world. Most progress in science and transportation could not have taken place without this standard of time.

This is a photo of the Royal Observatory in Greenwich. A laser projected from the building marks the Prime Meridian along the line identified in the stone.
