World's Fastest Slow-Motion Camera http://web.mit.edu/...ps-camera-1213.html
I'd like to see Neo try and keep up with this one. [RayfordSteele, Jan 22 2012]

       hmmm, very cool, but it isn't really a single burst of light they have captured is it?
It's a composite of a whole bunch of bursts of light seamed together.

       There must be a way to take all of the one dimensional slices simultaneously for a true image.   

       Streak cameras have been around since the late 1960's for use in imaging rapid explosive detonations.   

       The technique of acquiring successively delayed timed images of a repetitive event is widely known.   

       The novelty of the link is that it shows a neat technique for imaging a 2D propagation over time [+].
