Light in slow motion -- Amazing
Nothing moves faster than light, right? True as that may be, a team at MIT has developed a method for visualizing its propagation to amazing effect.

Not the effect, the technology ;)

The light flash is a nanosecond long. You can see it washing over the tomato. I know this could be duplicated traditionally, but it wasn't.
"“The effective exposure time of each frame is two trillionths of a second and the resultant visualization depicts the movement of light at roughly half a trillion frames per second" Holy Carp!
