    Yes, you read that right! :smile:

    I didn't know where to post this, so here it is. I never thought I'd get to see something like this in my lifetime:

    I saw this a while ago when the paper came out. It's a bit of a scientific marketing trick in that they're not able to image a single packet of light in real time (implied by their trillion frames per second claim). Their camera is amazingly fast but it's an order of magnitude slower than Femto. They still can't cycle the electronic shutter fast enough to truely do it as it appears in the video. They have to image billions of different packets at millions of different random locations and then sort them out with software and combine them all to get the effect they're presenting.
  3. MajorMagee is correct.... I was in awe at first until I read more into it. Its still amazing to capture even one still of a packet of light.
