‘Mythbusters’ Films Gun Firing at 73,000 Frames Per Second (Video)

Super slow-motion experiment leaves host Adam Savage nearly speechless

Gun nuts and science nerds may have found their common ground in this awesome new video from Discovery’s “Mythbusters.”

Hosts Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage used a camera called The Phantom that records footage at 73,000 frames per second to capture a bullet exiting a handgun.

It was “really cool,” per Savage. He isn’t wrong.

The chatty Savage was nearly left speechless by the experiment, so who are we to carry on? Just watch the video below.
