Scientists/evil villains from Cornell University (backed by the Pentagon) have created a ‘time cloak’ that can hide an event for 40 trillionths of a second.
National Geographic:

The new research builds on recent demonstrations of “invisibility cloaks” that can make objects seem to disappear by bending waves of visible light.
The  idea is that, if light moves around an object instead of striking it,  that light doesn’t get scattered and reflected back to an observer,  making the object essentially invisible.
Now Cornell University  scientists have used a similar concept to create a hole in time, albeit a  very short one: The effect lasts around 40 trillionths of a second.
