I'm not sure the author of the article understands that Planck length
isn't a range of ten to thirty five _meters_

After that is explained, then the 1.6E-35 is still much much smaller
than x.yE-15
(detecting anything at x.yE-15 is still pretty damned impressive though)

I'd ask how long is a Holometer, but I guess they aren't finished
building it yet  :)
