Many Boffins died to bring us this information.

Wow.   Just wow.  That is a TINY slice of time.

Heh.  That's just the way we Marx time around here...

Submitter can disappoint women faster than this laser can fire

WANT!

That's still enough time to make *three* hard-boiled eggs.

Those names are actually just as good as the official SI prefixes.

Bonus: a device for generating short high-voltage electrical pulses is called a Marx generator.

Yeah, Subby deserves mad props for that one...

And one duck egg.

So, basically what I did in physics...but at a smaller scale.

A big pool game...nope, a small pool game in 3D...ok, 4D but who counting, oh you are.

"so a short sharp shock needs to be in the attosecond (10-18s) region "

Ae those Boffins are always giving their lives for something.

Depressing, suicidal jerks, all of them.

Did they celebrate their success with cake and tootsie-fruitsie ice-a cream?

Makes my 4GHz scope look like a multimeter.

We are this much closer to seeing a Scientist Planking a laser!

Seeing how plank time is 10^-44, I'm only moderately impressed.
