High Speed Photography

Last week I posted a high speed clip of a hollow point bullet traveling through ballistics gel. This week I found a montage of various high speed photos involving everything from bullets to drag racers.

I thought the scene with the tire on the drag racer was pretty cool. I never realized how much stress is put on those tires.

We watch drag racing - because it's fun. Every once in a while they show a slow mo of the car doing the initial acceleration and it's just amazing how much the entire car flexes much less the tires! Especially the top fuel cars - holy moley!
