Meet Zaptoskind, the smallest unit ever

Scientists have measured the smallest unit of time: the time it takes for a light particle to pass Hydrogen Molecule.

At that point, for the record, it is 247 zaptosconds. A zaptoskind is a billionth of a billionth of a second, or a decimal point followed by 21 zeros and a 1. Earlier, researchers dived into the field of zaptoskinds; In 2016, researchers reported in the journal Nature physics Used a laser to measure the time in increments of 850 zeptoseconds. This accuracy is a huge leap from the 1999 Nobel Prize-winning work that first measured time in femtoseconds, which are in the tens of millions of seconds.
