Catching an Explosion in Water at 5 Million FPS – The Slow Mo Guys
Golden, CO – Shaped charges are capable of smashing through a target at a speed of 10 Kilometres per second. Gav and Dan whip out the serious kit for this one. 5 million frames per second played back at 25 fps is the equivalent of slowing down 1 second of real time to over 2 days of playback.
Big thanks to the Colorado School of Mines for letting us back and for the use of their explosives and Shimadzu Hyper Vision HPV-X ultra high-speed video camera.
