How Can we describe time?

15 Jan
German researchers have turned an optical tweezer device into the world’s first “nano-ear” capable of detecting sounds six orders of magnitude below the threshold of human hearing. Using an optically trapped gold nanoparticle as their listening device, the team says they can now detect sounds made at the bacterial level or use their device to tune (or perhaps to test?) the minuscule MEMS machines of the future.
It is said to have taken 5 years to accomplish what use to take 20yrs, 1yr to accomplish what use to take 5yrs, can you imagine what we can achieve within the next 6months.
Why?
