Quick Stuff!Teachable Moment: MIT's "Doc" Edgerton pioneered slow motion photography through the use of strobe lights and innovative cameras.  It's amazing that this short, Oscar winning, 50+ year old documentary can still engage viewers into understanding physical properties of the world around them.

 

From IMDB: In this Pete Smith Specialty, Dr. Harold E. Edgerton demonstrates stroboscopic photography, which he helped develop. This process allows us to see in slow motion what happens during events that occur too fast to be seen by the naked eye. Examples shown here include a bullet in flight as it shatters a light bulb, the moment of impact when a kicker kicks a football, and a the motion of a hummingbird's wings as it hovers.
