Scientists measure the shortest amount of time ever: A zeptosecond

October 19th, 2020

Scientists successfully measured an event using zeptoseconds, which is an incredibly brief fraction of a second. The time it took for a photo to pass through a hydrogen molecule was measured at 247 zeptoseconds, which is the smallest measurement ever achieved. In the future, more and more accurate measurements of time on this small scale …
