There's an argument about the dividing line between animals and humans.

How would we treat animals if there was still a creature sitting between us and apes in intelligence?

This creature can understand basic language without too much training, it can speak without too much training - just hanging around humans it can pick up the basics. It could end up achieving the level of a 4 or 5 year old maybe, and looked pretty much like us, but was a separate species.

How would we treat animals given this human-like but non-human animal?

Zeptosecond’ measured for first time

German scientists announced they had measured the smallest unit of time ever recorded - a zeptosecond. A zeptosecond is one trillionth of a billionth of a second.

Researchers made the discovery while studying how long it took a photon – a particle of light – to cross a hydrogen molecule. They said the photon crossed the molecule in about 247 zeptoseconds. “This is the shortest timespan that has been successfully measured to date,” the team said in a statement.
