Caltech Team Builds a Camera That Captures The Invisible at a Trillion Frames Per Second

Scientists continue to push the boundaries of what cameras are capable of – like a newly developed phase-sensitive compressed ultrafast photography (pCUP) device, which is capable of snapping an impressive one trillion frames every second.
That's mind-boggling, but it's not a record, because some of the same researchers developed a camera that can take 10 trillion shots a second back in 2018. This new camera has another party trick too, though: it can capture transparent objects and other phenomena invisible to the naked eye, such as shockwaves.
While this incredible bit of technology won't be much use for your holiday photos or Instagram selfies, it promises to have a variety of scientific uses across physics, biology and chemistry.

And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future.

That's pretty damn impressive. Worth doing a blog on, I think.
