Scientists have established a unique technique to map, on a scale of milliseconds, the elasticity of the components inside a cell. They use the vibrations of planet Earth to characterize its deep structure, scientists have discovered a way to use vibrations within cells to identify their mechanical properties. The study was published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
