    Link: The Fastest Thing You Will Ever See In Slow-Mo - Looks like somthing from a `50s sci-fi movie, but its real.

    "I believe this will shed some light on this video."

    That`s not bad, uhmerikin, but I think that this video explains it a little better.

    The lovely folks at MIT have apparently built a camera that can shoot 1 trillion frames a second, and in that video you`re seeing a laser burst traveling back and forth through a bottle of water.

    uhmerkin; Thanks for the explaination. I thought all I was seeing was a flashlight passing over it. that vid makes it a little more interesting.

    Rick S; Well played.

    If you slow something really really boring down, its still boring. Its just really really slow.

    Name one other video in the past 6 months here where something has moved at the speed of a laser light.

    "I thought this was awesome. This is a big step for science!"

    What the fvuck are you talking about? Its a laser light, passing through plastic in front of a slo mo camera. WHere, in any of that, is a step?

    Random people just blurting out random poo, kinda like half the picture posts on this site now.

    IT IS: composite film of photons going through a bottle of liquid (water I think) because light (photons) slows down in dense material.

    It`s not ONE photon though, it hundreds of fuilmings of them shooting through the water, combined to make an image.

    Ok before this thing gets down voted to hell, I think this post is related to this article.
    MIT creates imaging system that captures images at one trillion frames per second

    How about reading or listening or watching the news?

    @ilikelogic ummm there were experiments with gases that can slow light to a stop, but all it`s really doing is the gas molecules catch and release the light trillions of times, this video isn;t an accurate measurement of light speed, because as soon as it starts you can see the light, which means it traveled through the container, and to the camera before it even began moving down the bottle. pretty sure the bottle has that gas, i cant remember the name. besides, why would students at MIT use a coke bottle?

    3:17 of my life, gone

    After about :20 I jumped ahead a couple of times and saw that it was all the same. I spared myself at least 2 minutes of crap that would put me into a coma instead of curing my boredom.

    for all of you that dont know, that is a beam of light captured at over a trillion frames per second. its the slowest slowmo cam to date. the fact that you can actually see the beam of light move like that is increadable.

    so this is a major accoplishment for science and everyone here is just pooting on it like its nothing... ITS THE dratING SPEED OF LIGHT!!! AND ITS BEEN CAPTURED ON CAMERA FOR drat SAKE

    And it only took several minutes to do it!
    the video is captured over several minutes by repeated and periodic sampling.

    So if I`m not mistaken... this camera and footage is faster than the speed of light? How is that even possible?

    Incredible!!

    It is NOT the speed of light.

    3.0 x 10^8 meters/second = speed of light

    1 x 10^12 exposures/second = speed of camera

    Is the camera fast? Damn fast. Does it come close to the speed of light? No, no it doesn`t.
    Is the video GOD AWFUL BORING? Oh yes.

    the camera does not have a 1 trillionth of a second shutter speed. It takes many photos shot over hours to combine into something that mimics a fast camera, they sure fooled you idiots . . .

    wtfrock`s posted link is more interesting because it details the practical applications of this technology and how the camera actually works.
