    120,000 fps ? but in 1952 (estimating here) they already had a camera that could do 1 million frames per second and 10 million frames per second shortly after that (used to record atomic bomb explosions). 😶 They should use something like that now i think

    Hey Guys, did you know that the people who made the effects for the recent Han Solo movie are saying they used this technique (based on watching THIS video) to show the mountain blow up after the train chase! Cool!!!! You have arrived!

    It would of been super neat to of detonated right next to the glass so the pressure bubble would push the water away from the glass possibly letting you see in to it more clearly.

    i'd really like to know why the water shoots up in those thin tendrils during the beginning of the surface explosion. i would have expected the water to have shot up in one uniform dome, at least at the very beginning of the explosion

    Cavitation is heat energy vaporising water with latent heat which creates a cavity volume of dry water gas
    that momentarily occupies a much larger volume than the liquid water that has been affected.
    When all of the heat energy has been exhausted, the water gas condenses back to liquid and occupies its original volume
    therefore appearing to disappear.

    Love these videos! Any chance you guys could record and upload your videos at 60fps? That way, we can enjoy an even slower footage by playing it at 0.25 speed.

    Why does the water surface video show lines coming up? Because it is a Newtonian fluid and it shears, and it can be bothered with surface tension at that amount of Force.

    I now think the big bang is an explosion, not an inflation like they normally described. We are still in an on going explosion, thus the reason why everything is still accelerating away from each other. As a matter of fact, we are in a very early stage of the explosion. The equal pressure (or no pressure) of the void exerted from the outside has made it perfectly uniformed.
