You’ve probably seen the Discovery show called Time Wrap, it’s one of the coolest shows that I really enjoy.
Using the latest in high-speed photography, the Time Warp team takes some natural events (a cat licking its paw, a champagne bottle being opened) — and some not-so-natural (a water balloon to the face, a raw piece of chicken exploding) — and turns them into a thing of both beauty and learning.
High speed photography is the science of taking pictures of very fast phenomena. It’s defined as any set of photographs captured by a camera capable of 128 frames per second or greater, and of at least three consecutive frames. Here are some very cool photographs that use that technique.
