"It's cool that there`s a camera that shoots a trillion frames per second, but it`s not cool that they used it for....ahem...this."

......and what else do you know that moves at the speed of light? Cynical much?

"well i was hoping for something cool to happen. Thanks for the letdown. in other words,
Nothing to see here, move along"

Yeah god forbid we have cool videos of stuff you like, like stocking shelves and pumping gas....

"anyway, as amazing as light waves are, this video just makes me think about how expensive a trillion fps capturing camera is...."

Especially since its not recording an entire second. its recording an instant, the time it takes for light to travel.

The past one of these ive seen was actually a series of mirrors lined up, as each frame was burnt in the mirror was broken as to not transmit any more of the light....

'Femtosecond`....that`s ten to the minus fifteenth of a second! `Discrete packages` anybody?
