"This accuracy is a huge leap from the 1999 Nobel Prize-winning work that first measured time in femtoseconds, which are millionths of a billionths of seconds."

The journalist forgot to mention that attochemistry has existed for a while. This work is an advance, but not a huge leap.

Must have used an AMD processor then?

So you're saying six orders of magnitude isn't a huge leap? Really? (Technically it's 4 orders give or take, but still)

Going from ~50 attoseconds to ~250 zettoseconds is neither six orders of magnitude nor four. As I mentioned above, the journalist goes directly from 1999's groundbreaking work to this one, ignoring the research made in the last decades.
