Watching a Light Beam at One Trillion Frames per Second


Billy alerted me to this TED Talk presentation on an MIT Media Labs project that used new "femto photography" techniques that allow us to watch -- in VERY slow motion -- a light beam pass through a bottle. Amazing. Makes me think about Einstein's old thought experiment about running alongside a light wave (but of course here they are slowing down time...)

 Here are some details on how they did this:
