If you're anything like me, you've probably lived your life so far completely unaware of the "hidden universe" that surrounds us ... one that manages to successfully hide it's many amazing wonders from us.
The wonders that I'm referring to are the incredible events that we never get to see and that are effectively invisble to us, basically because they start and finish in such a fantastically short space of time that we have no hope of perceiving them with our "normal" visual processing speed.

Recently, I posted a thread titled Amazing footage of a lightning strike like you've never seen !
that opened up a small window into that hidden and amazing world when I showed a vid of a 1 second lightning stroke captured at 6000 frames per second and then played back at the standard 24 frames per second rate ... absolutely mind-boggling playback



Similar to the above vid, here's yet another one that shows a number of bullets being fired at various targets made of different materials. What makes this particular video a jaw-dropping one is that the bullets were filmed at a staggering 1,000,000 ... yes, thats 1 MILLION frames per second. The amount of detail captured and then displayed during playback is awesome !

Here's a few sample frames of just one of those bullets:




And here's the vid itself for your delight and amazement ...

Very Nice! Amazing.
The shotgun pellet hiting the bullet was my favorite part.

Wow, that is absolutely memorizing. I just can't look away..... Very cool post, tauristercus. That vids a keeper, along with the lightening strike vid. Both have found a home in my 'videos' folder... thanks.

That is one of the more interesting videos I have seen. Thanks again for the vid. I can say one thing for sure that is not a view you see everyday.

Why are more and more of topics like these getting on ATS?

Quantity over quality it seems.

That video reminds me of the 4th of July. I want to go pop firecrackers now.

MOTF!

For one very simple reason ... we have a Science & Technology section available for just this sort of thing.

Also slow motion photography/videography is used extensively to capture and examine extremely high speed events that are normally "invisible" to the naked eye. Videos such as the ones being "more and more" displayed as you pointed out give us a window into a world that surrounds us constantly but one that we're unaccustomed to seeing.

As far as I'm concerned, I'm more than happy to continue seeing such being posted here on ATS and having my "horizons" expanded !

I've been shooting guns most of my life, that was a very new and super cool perspective on shooting. Like the lightening video, another awesome thread.

WOW !!! simply incredible !
Who would have believed that a bullet penetrating an object could be considered almost a work of art


Excellent post OP, well done.
S&F for you.

i remember a while back a commercial for, i believe, a japanes knife.
they shot the blade with a rifle and it showed it slowly splitting the bullet.
neat stuff.

This vid contains something very similar to your example ... a bullet is fired at, and perfectly hits, a sharp edge. Watching the impact in slo-mo is incredible !

Because theyre good, thought provoking, educational, and fill the void between "I'm an alien ghost who killed JFK using mk ultra mind control on james deans lost soul channeled into lee harvey from the future past and I hold the true key to the mayan calendar and it's for sale through dick cheney who's tim geitners real father and he hasnt eaten food in 70 years"
types of threads.

I agree.. high speed cameras are too awesome..

wish I had one.. Id have a BAST filming everthing..



the 'time warp' show on discovery is a good show too..
they have a little too much fun though..
makes me jealous

Amazing footage. From a 3D animators perspective, it's interesting to see how these impacts closely resemble fluid dynamics.

Thanks for the post

I worked with ultra high speed cameras at NWC China Lake Calif back in the late 1960s.

The one i liked was the Model 126 Rotating Mirror Film Camera.

This camera could take photos at 20 million frames per second

We did warhead firing test.

20 MILLION fps ??? How incredible is that

And here I was thinking that 60,000 and 1 million was mind-boggling fast !

Those figures now make me wonder just how fast the fastest camera available today can record. Is 20 million fps as fast as they get at the moment ?


[edit on 27/8/10 by tauristercus] A quick Google shows that way back in 2000, they had a camera capable of shooting 200 MILLION fps.


With the ability to take pictures at a speed of 200 million frames per second, Arun Shukla's high-speed camera can make even the fastest moving objects look like they are standing still. In an effort to assist the military and a variety of industries, he is using this one-of-a-kind technology to study how things break apart.

advance.uri.edu...


If that was 10 years ago, imagine what they must have now !

[edit on 27/8/10 by tauristercus] Just did a quick calculation.
At 20 million fps, a beam of light will have only traveled a mere 1.5 meters between frames ... WOW
