Amazing Things That Can Happen in One Second

Updated on March 14, 2012

So Many Things Can Happen in One Second

I watched a short documentary today about what amazing things can happen in one second. After I’ve listed the following things, I’m thinking that this list can be endless. So, if you know amazing things that can happen in one second, please leave me a comment :)

1 Second is:

  • The time a Cesium atom vibrates 9,192,631,770 times (1967, General Conference of Weights and Measures)
  • The time it takes for a baseball that left a pitcher’s hand to get hit by the bat and fly back to the pitcher.
  • The time a man’s fist make an impulse of 1 ton.
  • The time saliva from a person’s mouth travels 100m when there is no air resistance.
  • The time a bullet travels 900m and penetrates the target.
  • The time a snail travels 1cm to avoid falling raindrops.
  • The time a honey bee flaps its wings 200 times.
  • The time a toad’s tongue snatches a worm.
  • The time the earth receives 48,600,000,000kw of energy form the sun.
  • The time 2.4 babies are born.
  • The time 1.3 car is made.
  • The time 4.2 televisions are made.
  • The time 5,700 liters of carbonated drink is consumed.
  • The time 51 tons of cement is used.
  • The time 22 travelers cross borders.
  • The time 79 stars are vanish from the space.


  • If the 15,000,000,000 years of space is reduced to one year, the history of mankind is one second.
