The world has a new fastest camera, and it shoots at 10 trillion frames per second
The "slow motion" modes on modern smartphones crank up the speed of video recording so that when it's played back at regular speed the motion you see on the screen is slowed down. It's a neat feature to mess around with, but slow motion capture has some very serious scientific applications as well. Capturing the microscopic world at high speeds can help researchers shed light on all kinds of interesting behaviors and phenomena that shape our reality.
Now, imaging specialists have built what is being called the fastest camera on the planet, allowing for the capture of movement at up to 10 trillion frames per second. Forget slowing down a video of a home run at your kid's softball game, this incredible contraption can slow down light itself.
