Those are some nice photo's, they turned out really well. Are the photo's (1, 2 and 3) all taken directly after each other by your camera or are their other frames in between which you didn't upload?

You should shoot some more stuff, this is really interesting.

in the upcoming presidential election, there will be several candidates who will be running, one of whom is Hillary Clinton. Now WAIT A SECOND!!! I though there was some sort of rule that prevented someone from serving more than two terms in office. Vote Against Hillary: Presidential Elections 08

While the air probably has some level of impact, the kinetic energy transferred to the glass bulb is enough on its own to produce the effects illustrated.

Nice shots Pete btw, do we get to see the launcher? :D

edit-> nevermind

Yea, do what he ^ said. I tried quoting the html for it and it got mad at me and didn't put it in there. I guess I'm just oldschool like that.

ok, this has got to be the most outrageous high-speed footage I've ever seen:

There are people out there who own high-speed cameras that are throwing washing machines out of their trucks onto the highway, then I don't have one?! Yeesh.
