Abstract

Designs for planned space clock missions are described. The cold collision shift and multiple launching (juggling) have important implications for the design and the resulting clock accuracy and stability. In a recent fountain experiment, we have demonstrated some of the trapping and cooling techniques for our design of a microgravity clock.
