Filming the Speed of Light with the world’s fastest camera #Science #Photography @Caltech @TheSlowMoGuys
Via Emily Velasco, Twitter – Did you know it’s possible to build a camera so fast that it can record a video of light traveling? I literally spent many hours taking care of the arrangements to make this happen, so check it out! (Note: This is not an April Fools post, seriously)
The video below shows some amazing photography from T-CUP: the world’s fastest camera, capable of capturing ten trillion (1013) frames per second. This new camera literally makes it possible to freeze time to see phenomena — and even light! — in extremely slow motion. The camera and team are at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in Pasadena, California USA. lead by Lihong Wang.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
