Video at 1 trillion frames per second

In 1964 the first photograph was taken of a bullet being shot through an apple. The frame rate was one millionth of a second. To watch a movie of the same subject, a bullet being shot through an apple, at one trillion frames per second, would take you a year to view it according to Ramesh Raskar of MIT, the mastermind behind new camera technology that shoots so fast you can actually observe light in motion. Take a look at this video and see for yourself how amazing this is and consider the possibilities of how this imaging technique can potentially benefit humanity.
