Take a look at the life and effect that Harold "Doc" Edgerton had on MIT and the world, in "How Fast is Fast?" produced by the Edgerton Foundation in 1994. The film presents a wide-ranging compilation of film clips and interviews. Doc Edgerton demonstrates all sorts of effects of strobe photography that allow us to see what happens at speeds too fast to be discerned by the naked eye. Some well-known examples include a flying bullet that shatters a lightbulb, the motion of a hummingbird's wings, a cat lapping up milk, falling liquid drops. Produced by MIT Video Productions for the Edgerton Foundation. 1994.
