Extreme camera lets you see faster than light

Light travels at an outrageous speed of 186,282 miles per second, making it difficult to accurately photograph. But there is finally an awesome solution: the super super slow-mo camera. Due to the efforts of a group of researchers at MIT, we can now capture light in travel. They constructed an exceptional camera that shoots one trillion frames per second – which is quite damn fast – and in this way they are able to track the effects of light as it travels across objects. Even though the camera has an enormous speed, it still requires a huge amount of time to create a watchable video. This is due to the fact that lasers and the camera work in combination to seizure the light as it travels through space. But in order to get a whole picture, the camera necessities to take 500 pictures of each part of an object. After that, the frames are joint to generate a video of the lights movement. To learn more about this astonishing development, be sure to watch the video below!
