Scientists film electron for the first timeMikey 2 comments
For the first time in history, Scientists have been able to film an electron in motion using a technique that will allow them to study them directly.
Said Johan Mauritsson of Lund University in Sweden:
"It takes about 150 attoseconds for an electron to circle the nucleus of an atom. An attosecond is 10^-18 seconds long, or, expressed in another way: an attosecond is related to a second as a second is related to the age of the universe"
I will take his word for it. Check out the cool video after the ad break.
