Wonder no more:
They rely on the resonant frequency of atoms in metal vapors (Cesium or Rubidium), or the output of a hydrogen maser.
Radioactive decay is a chaotic process. So chaotic that it can be used as the basis for a random number generator. Just what you DON'T want in a precise time/frequency reference.
At least it didn't wipe this hard drive that was found among the debris from the Columbia accident:
Just to clarify, you would need to seal the outer surface, and pull a vacuum on the internal volume of the material. Then, assuming that the sealing coating didn't weigh too much, the stuff should float.
Because the material is extremely porous, and is saturated with ambient air.
In a vacuum, the material should float.
