10-14, Jiri Vanicek and Tomas Zimmerman, EPFL

The NCCR MUST book illustrates the range of timescales that play a role not only in our lives, but also in the lives of all living beings on earth. We created the book to show how MUST research, where our investigative work is done at the ultrafast level (10-8 to 10-16), into perspective with other different life processes occurring in time.








The pages are set out as a series of timescales with ten images of a process occurring in time, with a short accompanying text. The reader starts at the center, 100 or one second (the blink of an eye) and then experiences the dynamics at each time period from the fastest timescale 10-16 (Electronic Motion in Molecules) to longest at 1018 (The Formation of the Milky Way). The aim of the book is to give deeper insight, both visually and with text, into some of the amazing physical events, cultural developments and biological process from life. The examples for the timescales are brought together using three intertwined themes: life, light and science.
