Lots of blow-by!
A bullet leaving a gun barrel filmed at ONE MILLION FRAME PER SECOND. Filmed using the Photron SA-1 camera.
Lots of blow-by!
"Semper paratus, numquam indigens." - "Always prepared, never needed."
“We have not inherited the earth from our fathers, we are borrowing it from our children.” Sound familiar? Sounds like our debt crisis.
Something really cool -- at the end of the video of a bullet being fired is a thumbnail to click on to get to bullet impact videos.
Interesting to see what happens when bullets hit various targets -- steel, glass, and gelatin.
In the gelatin shots, you can see hollow points open up, with resulting increases in energy transfer and temporary wound channels.
Those impact shots have a strange kind of beauty - like playing with a kaliedoscope or watching large waves breaking.
"Tell me, is there balm in Gilead?"
Quoth the raven, "Nevermore."

That's pretty cool. Thanks for sharing.
I get mesmerized watching these!

'I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.' Thomas Jefferson
Reminds me of the show on Discovery called "Time Warp." Not sure how many of you are fammiliar with it, but their thing was to shoot seemingly ordinary (and some not so ordinary) events with extremely high-speed cameras to show you exactly what happens. They captured all kinds of things, and it was always pretty captivating for me. I definitely agree that there is something about super slow-mo that just amazes me. Thanks for sharing.
Q: Why do you carry a gun?
A: It’s much lighter than carrying a police officer
"He who goes unarmed in paradise had better make darned sure that's really where he is."
I'm with PSC01, there's just something about slow motion that is facinating!
"I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it" Thomas Jefferson 1791
"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." Benjamin Franklin
"If everyone is thinking alike then someone isn't thinking!" - General Patton
"If we waited for Washington to tell us when to plant, we should soon want bread." Thomas Jefferson - (He was talking about DC not George)
Awesomely cool! I agree, slo-mo has come along way.
