    For First Time Ever, Scientists Watch Atom?s Electrons Move in Real Time

    We can see electrons.

    Why bother?

    It’s truly general and can be applied to attosecond electronic dynamics problems in the physics and chemistry of liquids, solids, biological systems, everything.”

    led by groups from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (MPQ) in Garching, Germany, and from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of California at Berkeley

    Oh no, those liberals are at it again.

    The physical demonstration of attosecond transient absorption by the combined efforts of the Leone and Krausz groups and their colleagues will, in Leone’s words, “allow us to unravel processes within and among atoms, molecules, and crystals on the electronic timescale” — processes that previously could only be hinted at with studies on the comparatively languorous femtosecond timescale.

    A lot of good discoveries come from colleges and universities. Napalm is one.

    Napalm is a "good" discovery? Probably came from one of those Confederate Southern "Christian" Colleges. I've heard they are very warlike and they have a history of discrimination.
