We recently purchased a high speed video camera. It is part of our Institute of Museum and Library Science (IMLS) grant. The goal We recently purchased a high speed video camera. It is part of our Institute of Museum and Library Science (IMLS) grant. The goal is to excite an interest in science by showing the dynamics involved in collisions, acceleration, high speed reactions and motion. This is the first complete video we filmed. It was shot at 600 frames per second. VISIT OUR BLOG at http://exploreum.blogspot.com/ AND SUGGEST SOMETING FOR US TO FILM AT HIGH SPEED. IF WE LIKE YOUR IDEA, IT MAY JUST END UP ON YOUTUBE AND THE EXPLOREUM WEBSITE. NOTE: This video does not include audio.
