DailyDirt: Cameras For Science

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

You almost can't make it to the cover of a major scientific publication like Science or Nature without a really cool picture to present your data. It seems that everyone likes pretty pictures, even scientists. So here are a few science projects with some interesting camera equipment. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    way faster than a speeding bullet...

    capturing the speed of light with digital cameras seems impressive, but they must do something similar at the LHC, too, right? Smashing elementary particles together and recording what happens must be a pretty near-instantaneous event.

    It's so fast it can actually track the movement of light as it travels -- under specific conditions, of course.

    I can just imagine the conditions:

    Duuuude! Oh Wow! I can see, like, light and stuff! Eeeeeeeerrrrrrrrmmmmmmm VOOM! It's like, all bright and stuff!

    Man this is some good shit!
