Video: Explosive high-speed camera footage
High-speed cameras can achieve very high frame rates (or recording speeds) in order to see incredible slow-motion film. While normal TV runs at about 25 frames per second (fps), the most advanced high-speed cameras can achieve up to 1,000,000 fps. You’ll see eggs go bang, water balloons go pop, and lots of fruit go… everywhere. Not only is this kind of footage very useful for helping us to understand the way the molecules of different materials hold together, it can also be really useful for such scientific disciplines as ballistics.
