"Things You Wouldn't Know If We Didn't Blog Intermittently."
Somewhere, Harold Edgerton is smiling and rubbing his hands with delight.
They are stunning!
Re anon's comment:Harold Eugene "Doc" Edgerton (April 6, 1903 – January 4, 1990) was a professor of electrical engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is largely credited with transforming the stroboscope from an obscure laboratory instrument into a common device.
And using that common device to capture this iconic image (http://www.agallery.com/pages/photographers/edgerton.html) of a drop of milk hitting a red enamel tray. And the image of a bullet cutting a playing card in half that was used on Golden Earring's "Cut" LP.
These are awesome. They look like abstract works of blown glass. I, too, thought of Edgerton.
I think the first one is a droplets colliding, yes?... which reminds me of a SloMoGuys vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNI-LIVs-to
