Scoville Scale - Developed in 1912 to measure the pungency of chili peppers. Originally, the heat rating of pepper extracts was measured by dilution with water. The degree of dilution, until there was no 'heat' observed anymore, gives the measure on the Scoville scale. Jalapeno extract has to be diluted up to 8,000 times to be not detected, a drop of extract from the Carolina Reaper has to be diluted more than 2 million times!
