A REALLY Thin Guitar String

Smallest ‘guitar string’ to weigh atoms:

Scientists hope that “playing” a tiny guitar string, the smallest ever created, will help unravel some of the secrets of the molecular world.
The string, developed at Cornell University, US, is only 10 atoms across, a million times smaller than a normal guitar string.

Those crazy scientists. The frequency it plays at, you’re wondering?

The pitch is beyond human hearing, around 1,000 times higher than the frequencies human beings can hear.
