Using a high speed camera shooting at 2000 framers in 1 second this little video shows you what it looks like to pop a water balloon in slow motion. Amazingly, even at these speeds you'll notice that no matter how hard you try to track the balloon's skin retract it's just too darn fast!
One second (pun!) it's there then it isn't! You'll also get a kick out of seeing a Japanese Andy Warhol. ;)
