MythBusters: Gunshot captured at 73,000 frames per second

Posted on


Calling all superheroes: “Faster than a speeding bullet” just got a little easier to imagine.

In their latest quest to leap tall scientific discoveries in a single bound, the MythBusters team recorded a bullet leaving the barrel of a gun at 73,000 frames per second on Saturday. With the help of a high-speed camera called the Phantom, Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage captured fire and smoke patterns that dissipate too quickly for the naked eye. The end result left Savage nearly speechless. 

Check out the guys’ “exquisite world exclusive” above.
