Researchers would sometimes run the same experiment over and over in front of the same, too-slow camera until it had collected enough different frames of action to string together into a single, complete movie. This wouldn't work for crashing a compressed laser into a surface like etched glass though; the researchers wanted to see what that looked like, but they knew it would look different each time. There was no way to string multiple experiments together into a single movie.
The still camera makes a single, smeared shot of the laser's whole motion.

Sorry, completely untrue. Tesla was a genius in some ways, but completely wrong in others. His theories on the ether are completely proven wrong by science. Michelson-Morley disproved Tesla back in the 1800s and current scientific research would not be possible if it were real, as it relies on relativity /quantum mechanics.

When you're on a ship traveling at the speed of light, I bet the stars barely move? They certainly don't zoom past like in Star Trek. Too much distance between them.
