One minute


How long is a minute? Here, perhaps we know this: “A minute lasts sixty seconds”. If desired, we can also be more precise and enclose the minute in the extremely precise mechanical of the watch: “In a minute, the second hand moves sixty times, while the long hand moves only once”. But is it a long or short time? It depends! Many things can happen in a minute. Or nothing can happen. A minute can fly or you can drag like a snail. With intelligence and poetic sensitivity Somin Ahn tells us how relative time can be, through everything that can happen while the second hand goes around the clock.
