    Wow! Very cool. I love that one bright flash that happens so quickly that no “motion” is captured even at such a high frame rate.

    See also this longer one, at 9000 fps, also by Tom Warner — http://vimeo.com/45803576

    The ancillary activity is incredible.

    Very beautiful. The way it seems to stay connected for ages at the end seems odd at first.
