Video – Femto Photography

Light is fast (299,792,458 m/s)! In fact it travels so fast that the human eye cannot see it travelling. However, a new super, super, super slow motion camera, called a femto camera, can film so quickly that it can see light travelling in slow motion! Have a look at the videos below.





This video is slowed down so much that if we put a gun at the bottom of the bottle and fired then watched the video back, we would need to watch it for over a year before the bullet reached the red bottle cap.
