Thanks for posting, Doug. I'm a pretty giant science nerd, so this was especially fascinating to me. I can only imagine how much research and innovative thinking went into developing a camera with the ability to resolve frames on the order of pico(!)-seconds.

That aside, though, the potential applications for this technology are astounding. And really, it seems to be only a matter of time in the not-too-distant future that some of them can be realized. Very exciting stuff.

I'm gonna go ahead and not thank you for this post Doug. You just reminded me that classes start back up in less than a month. :(
