To give you a bit of a perspective, the cameras that the Slow Mo Guys generally used for their videos – despite being amazingly wonderful and impressive – are about twenty million times slower than the one that was at Caltech. The two teams joined forces for the sake of capturing the speed of light.

The speed of light is in the ranges of picoseconds and femtoseconds. The Slow Mo Guys are more than just excited with this new and amazing project. It makes total sense because being able to film the speed of light is definitely something very cool and wonderful.
