Theoretical physicists have just proved to be able to track and control the movement of electrons in molecules. The research falls into the domain of attophysics -- tracking the particles on the time scales of 10 18 second. For the first time in history physicists made observation on an interval of as small as 100 attoseconds. The breakthrough promises to let us control electrons' movement in chemical reactions.
